Validation

Apparently veggie growers aren't the only ones snubbing out of season grocery store produce. My friends, our "snobbery" has been validated!

Given recent topics around here lately, I thought it would only be appropriate to share with you an article I came across on Yahoo! this morning.

Enjoy!

The only thing I disagree with about that article, is that tomatoes don't taste good in the winter. Surprise, surprise! Yes, I have eaten delicious winter tomatoes, but they were grown at a hydroponics greenhouse in AZ! They had a fabulous, fresh flavor. They're about $3.50 a pound, though. Needless to say, we don't buy very many of them! In fact, since I had my own plant this winter, I didn't buy any at all.

Interesting article. I saw asparagus in the grocery store this week and wondered where it came from...just not the right time! I think eating seasonally just makes things more special. I look forward to the June strawberries, July blueberries, Spring rhubarb and asparagus, summer vegetables and herbs...somehow the anticipation makes them taste even better. But then I always have enjoyed delayed gratification!

Great topic CM....There's nothing worse than grocery store produce especially in the winter....plus you really have to pay attention to where it comes from...more and more produce in the stores are from Mexico...I say no thanks...I'm sure there are a few exceptions but those are few and far between.
