This is why I am still eating root vegetables in May. There was snow in the mountains today!
So while those of you downstate are munching on fresh lettuce and tomatoes, I am still eating the remains of cold storage. Potatoes and kale are finished but beets, carrots and parsnips abound. I started a hydroponic garden about a month ago and this weekend, we shared about 8 pieces of arugula, mustard greens and lettuce among four people. And it was good.
There comes a time in mid spring, where I have to have fresh greens and fruit after a long winter of root vegetables. I threw slow food to the wind and bought mangos, pineapples, oranges and cherries. Don’t judge me.
