“Eat your vegetables.” – mothers everywhere
This week I had my first REAL salad of the season. Thanks to Ginger (a person not the spice), her green thumbs & generosity AND to Tom for building some fabulous raised veggie beds for her!
If you haven’t ever fixed a salad from greens you just picked – well, you don’t know what you’re missing. I drizzled mine with homemade peanut & ginger dressing ( I used natural crunchy peanut butter and omitted the tomatoes – til i can get some REAL ones <grin>) .
My mouth (and the rest of my body, too) was happy for HOURS.
Over the next weeks and months real veggies will be appearing – not by magic- by the hard working and loving hands of local farmers.
Our local farmers’ market officially opens on May 9. I’ll be there – ready to fill several cloth bags and catch up with the wonderFULL folk there.
I can hardly wait!
There’s a lot of talk (and action) these days about organic, locally grown, fair trade, sustainable, etc. Ya can’t get more of most of these than produce grown by one of your neighbors.
How are you getting real about how you feed your body?
