Week 2 supporting our local farmer.

 

Our second batch of organic veggies from across the street was a nice bonanza.

 

 

Red lettuce, spinach, mixed greens, snap peas, zucchini, celeriac, chard, turnip…. and something I couldn’t identify.

 

 

Since there was a cornucopia of greens that day, salad was on the dinner menu… and because this was green?

In it went.

Bad idea. Very bad.

It was the bitterest, most noxious thing to ever enter my mouth.

 

 

Doing a little research, I discovered it might be a variety of kale.

Curly kale.

No wonder I didn’t like it!

And no surprise it ended up here:

And take my advice, if anyone offers you celeriac?

Run.

It looks like a giant turd….

 

 

It’s hard to peel.

 

 

And will break your tooth if you’re not careful.

There’s a reason most people throw it out when they grow celery.

And now, I know why.

Because they’re odd.

 

I love odd, in case you haven’t been paying attention.

And on my normal route to the grocery store?

I pass this:

A bit personal as questions go, but delightfully odd.

And as my grocery store has been running low on sugar lately…

This:

Golden?

I’m fervently hoping they’re not talking about showers…. but anything that’s less processed usually gets my vote.

And adding to the growing list of  FFS, the panic buyers are still at it  substitute products I have to buy now?

This:

I must confess, I’m a trifle afraid of the Cousin Willie brand.

The more I stare, the more that ear of corn on the top right starts to look menacing… but I’ll be brave and soldier on.

At least it’s not as terrifying as this red pepper.

I agree.

Chocolate is always the safer bet.
