Quite possibly the best $20 ever spent.
(grr, blurry photo)
I am not kidding.
I have to admit I was feeling a bit jealous after seeing these gorgeous fresh produce posts here & here. And i'm sure that's only a few among the millions of bloggers.
Unfortunately, the produce markets here are as similar as a trip to the grocery store minus having to get up at the crack of dawn so as not to be left with slim pickings. Oh yea and the humidity.
Now, I have no problem with the grocery store produce section except for those times when I pick up something that looks so good. So fresh. Only to get it home & have it COMPLETELY lack in flavor. Cause yea, grocery store produce is usually picked underripe & gassed to ripen on the journey. mmmm.
I think that's why i'm so addicted to carbs. They taste exactly as they should. Everytime.
Ramble. But what I am MOST excited about is this gem right here.
Do you see that?!?
SWISS CHARD!! It's like Christmas. Literally, red & green :)
I could not be more happier. I have been searching for weeks. Last time I checked there was supposedly a problem with the crop.
I'm still jealous of all of you with farmer's markets.
At least I have the Chard.
