Aren't these vegetables gorgeous? They're even more delicious knowing they are organic and my first farm share pick up of the year. Worden Farm in Punta Gorda is an organic farm that offered the share opportunity for 2008/2009. For several weeks, each week, I'll receive a fresh box of seasonal veggies (I have to go pick it up at one of the pick up locations in Port Charlotte). This week's share included bok choy (I have no idea what to do with this), green beans, cilantro (I LOVE cilantro), tomatoes, zucchini, lettuce, and Swiss chard. Yum!
The farm share is sold out for the year but organic vegetables can be purchased at the Fishermen's Village Greenmarket on Wednesdays between 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and the Downtown Sarasota Farmers Market on Saturdays between 7 a.m and 1 p.m.
I had a veggie feast for dinner tonight, much needed after the two days of junk I've been eating this week. Unfortunately, I'm heading out of town Friday and won't be able to enjoy much of this week's harvest so I'll share with the office tomorrow.
