Spring has sprung!

You can always tell that the season has changed when your local produce changes. Here in Oregon, spring has sprung. For months the CSA box from Hood River Organics has been full of lots of root veggies and some braising greens. Today a big change happened! Today's box contained:
  • 2 loaves of bread
  • 1 block of farmhouse hard cheese
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 8 fuji apples
  • 8 Bosc pears
  • 11 new potatoes
  • 3 lb bag of mushrooms (mix of portabello and cremini)
  • Kale Rabe
  • big bunch of Kale Rabe
  • GIANT bag of arugula
  • big bunch of baby bok choy
  • Box of micro greens mix complete with edible flowers
I can't wait to switch my diet over from a staple of root roasts to a staple of salads! Eating locally is not only good for your health and the environment, but as you can see, you get put on a built-in diet around this time of year.
