It's cold and drippy and perfect weather for growing spring vegetables. Yes it's vegetable pick up day at our local organic CSA market and I have come home with fragrant potted parsley and (oh joy) potted basil which I hope will thrive outside my window like it did last year. Then there's young carrots, spinach, bok choy, butter lettuce and a big bunch of crunchy asparagras. And my neighbors came down to carry it upstairs. I had plenty to split with her. Now to eat! I don't know where to start. I guess I'll have lettuce because it's the most fragile. Bok choy tomorrow.
