Farm Fresh to You = LOVE

Saturday, February 23, 2013

I thought “Organic” was just a buzz word. Until I cut open my first organic lemon…

The smell wafted up to my nose – so strong that I immediately called my husband in to have him smell it. Then we tried some lemon wedges in our drink – splendid! Then we tried them with salmon and dill – superb! Well, I was sold. Organic, straight from the farm is the way to go.

This lemon came from a new service I’m trying out: FarmFreshToYou.

It’s basically fresh produce straight from the farm, delivered to your doorstep. They deliver every Tuesday in our area, and every Tuesday morning is a bit like Christmas morning. My eyes pop open and I head for the front door. What has Farmer Santa brought me today??



I take the box inside, and open it to see what fruit and veggie recipes I will be experimenting with this week!

The first week I got beets and fresh spinach. Never had beets before. I made this recipe:

Roasted Beet, Spinach and Walnut Salad

Amazing! Turns out I like beets a lot. And that fresh-picked spinach? Bursting with flavor!

So let’s see what Farmer Santa delivered this week:



Yummy! Looks like I will be experimenting with Kale and artichokes.

Bunny loves the fact that the carrots come complete with carrot tops. Guess who gets to eat those?

    You can't beat farm fresh anything! I hit the local farmers markets every chance I get.
