No more home gardens for me... We have a brand new farmers market about 10 mins up the road where I can buy all the lovely produce I want. I've also discovered a Farm Co-op program thing. You pay for a membership, it's like $400-$500, and from June through October the farm DELIVERS a magical mystery basket with fresh fruit and veggies! To.Your.Door! I'm really excited about it. Start saving my money now and by Jan I'll be able to pay up. I love the idea of fresh, local produce delivered to my door. Even more I love the idea that I won't know whats coming and so I'll be forced to be creative. We've become quite adventurous on our New Recipe Nights, so I am very excited about the idea of getting veggies I've never had or tried before and having to figure out what to do with them. After all take asparagus as an example... always claimed I didn't like asparagus, until someone at a BBQ wrapped it in bacon and I tried it. Now I've made a hugely successful New Recipe Night with it and I actually have some sitting in my refrigerator right now!
