Sometimes it does feel like I’m on that Food Network show. Like yesterday. Our weekly preview email from Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative.
Tells us we are getting Galantina chicory, and black futsu squash. REALLY???? I thought we were beyond being surprised.
Like in the past, with things like Thelma Sanders squash and White Hamon sweet potatoes.
The squash intrigues me, as I may try growing it in the garden next year. Drying seeds and planting them. Like this.
That was from my Thelma Sanders squash.
Seriously, I can’t imagine not having the fun associated with opening an email that introduces me to new and exciting vegetables, that inspire me to cook outside my comfort zone.
I am crossing my fingers that this fall we get more salsify.
Life’s too short to eat boring food.
