Yum! I’ve been posting a picture of my CSA pickup every week in my photo blog. It will be a great way to track the veggies by season.

What are the long, pale green things? I got something similar looking from an Asian market, and the man working there couldn’t speak any English. I didn’t know what to do with them, so they went bad, unfortunately.
April – I’m afraid you probably picked up some bitter melons at the Asian market. They look similar to the Armenian cucumbers (in the photo), but bitter melon is, well, REALLY bitter! What you see in the photo up there are Armenian cucumbers. That’s what I used for yesterday’s cucumber salad.
Wow! I cannot believe I landed on this page! A week or two ago I had a raw food cookbook author on my BlogTalk Radio Show who was talking about how wonderful the produce is at Farmer’s Markets. I live in Coarsegold and do not get to Fresno often, but wanted to go there to pick up some real flavorful produce.
So, I show up on your page and the link is right there waiting for me to click, and I wasn’t even searching for that! Thank you for this! Now I know when and where to go.
I have been creating quite a bit of gluten free recipes, but want to concentrate more on the cooking rather than baking. Some really fresh produce will definitely inspire me, and the photos will come out colorful and gorgeous, hopefully! Your photos are breathtaking. I applaud your talent! – wish I had you in my kitchen!
