It's hard to eat local; it's hard to eat seasonal.
I find my body is craving all the greens from the beginning of the season, and because of all the unseasonably hot weather we've been having here, all the greens look wilted and sad. I did manage to pick up one bag of mixed greens at the farmers market today, but when I go to the supermarket, I look at those perfect looking heads of lettuce and think, "what did they spray those with to make them look so perfect?" Now that we have a farmshare, I'm used to my vegetables having holes in them, and even sometimes having worms or snails. Yes, that's normal and healthy.
Frankly, it now grosses me out to look at much of the conventional produce at the grocery. Even the bagged spinach I use for my smoothies is unappealing.
It makes me wonder how people in cold weather climates eat seasonally. How do you make it work?
