     Please remember that this is January. We are doing our best to keep our fruits and vegetables looking good. That does not always mean that they are perfect. Our stored things can not compete with the grocery store. Their vegetables and fruits are NOT local. This time of year if you want to purchase local things they are stored or maybe greenhouse grown like the lettuce and arugala, but certainly not field grown.

    So if you feel that the skins of your pears do not look good enough to eat, just peel them. If they get soft quicker than you were expecting, make a smoothie! I made a smoothie today with lime juice, pears and some kiwis. It was delicious and reminded my that even old pears have a good use. Be creative! Think of this as an adventure. How to eat LOCAL in January!

 Thanks for your support. It humbles us to see how you have put your trust in us.
