The Co-op gets deliveries on Tuesdays and Fridays and I've quickly learned that those are the best days to shop, especially when looking for produce.
After months of pathetic looking veggies, my shopping experience yesterday was heartening!
There was rutabaga, skinny asparagus, that while not local, was at least grown in the USA, enormous shallots and greens that were not limp.
And so while today it might not exactly feel like spring (a high of 50 after being in the 70s???) it's only going to keep getting better. After a long winter of roasted, sauteed or baked vegetables, I was able to buy some lettuce mix. I'm craving a nice, raw salad.
