Colour! This week has colour! Orange, Purple, Yellow, Red, Pink, Purple, More Purple.

I get a bit enthusiastic the day the CSA share is available for pickup. Maybe just a bit too rambunctious about it. When I pulled into the parking lot at 4:03 pm, Danny’s greeting was not surprisingly, “You’re late!” Well hello to you too Danny. 🙂

Doesn’t this week’s collection just make you crazy? Not just the colour. But the textures. The tastes. Look at the pictures and visualize the tastes. I feel my ‘mouth moisture’ welling.
