Greens Galore

That first blush of green that accompanies the initial distribution of the season at Restoration Farm is always invigorating – bright, crisp, vibrant greens that kick-start the body and the soul.  
The youthfulness of the season is evident in curly kale, green lettuce, mizuna and bok choy. 
A bumper crop of fresh spinach overflows from bright hampers.  
Amid the sea of greens, there are some welcomed interlopers – pert radishes and dark red lettuce.
All is green, and bursting with life. The Tin House – the new distribution center for vegetables – welcomes scores of enthusiastic members with canvas bags in hand.  We have waited such a long time.  
Here’s to the salad days that lie ahead!

Dear T.W., I am ready for the delicious salad days ahead! It is getting warmer and I don't want to turn the oven on and am not that enthusiastic about bbq. Except for the marshmallow part...
Everything looks beautiful. Blessings, Catherine
