Appreciating Harvest Time

It is that time of year when local farm produce is in abundance here. We have belonged to a CSA, Mud Creek Farm, for a number of years. It is exciting to pick up our 'share' each week and return home with an abundance of fresh veggies.

Last night we dined on a delicious ratatouille with eggplant, squash, aruguala, tomatoes, and fresh herbs, served with freshly picked corn. Today for lunch, it was a stir fry of tomatoes, leeks, arugula, peppers, mushrooms, basil and cilantro.

Lunch Stir-fry
It is such a gift to have this food to eat, knowing the care that went into growing it. I hope, when growing season is taking place where ever you reside, that you have an opportunity to enjoy some of your area's local harvest!

Have a great day!
