Greenmarket bounty

Roastingly hot in New York City today, so we got up early this morning to take the Chows to the dog park and to make our run to the Greenmarket.

Today's haul: tender young onions; perfect, tiny new redskin potatoes; green beans (I'm going to cook the taters and beans together, southern-style, in a very small amount of water seasoned with a slice of fatback), yellow squash, fresh basil, and some astoundingly good hothouse tomatoes. And some great-looking radishes, which I plan to eat raw with a sprinkling of kosher salt for an afternoon snack.

But the really good news: my tomato supplier tells me the first honest-to-god grown-in-the-dirt Jersey Tomatoes will be available next week.
