A Winter Basket

Published / by Neil

We have some classy customers and one brought along her basket to put our veg in. A perfect match lit by the light from the barn’s north window. Maybe we should start making baskets for our customers, what do you think?

Some amazing Rainbow Chard for today’s veg box customers. Slice the stems and give them slightly longer cooking times (steam or stir fry) than the leaves.
