Just joined an organic food co-op called Purple Dragon. I picked up my first food share last night in Maplewood, and then drove the long, dark, windy road through Irvington to get home. Not such a nice neighborhood, for those of you who don’t know. When I got home and had a chance to happily paw through the loot, this is what we had gotten:

  • a bag of fresh blueberries (Dahlia was VERY happy about this one)
  • a bunch of carrots
  • 3 fresh red onions, greens and all
  • some green kale
  • a bunch of dark green lettuce
  • 4 ears of corn
  • peaches!
  • a small cantaloupe that promises to be sweet
  • a bunch of fresh flowering herbs that I have yet to identify. Possibly oregano? marjoram?


The mystery herb has been identified as Thai Basil!

  • abag of green beans
  • 3 tomatoes
  • some small yellow and green squash
  • one funky looking cucumber
  • a bunch of bananas

So now I really have to get cookin’!


One thought on “Yum!!

  1. You know, just cause you work with animals doesn’t mean you have to eat rabbit food…

    ;). I’m kidding. Actually those green beans looks awesome.

    And we miss you guys. When are we getting together?
