A New Leaf

Winter veg, local food, Dew Abides

Miranda from Little Bit Farm was a welcome sight at the downtown market Saturday morning. It had been more than a month since I had eaten anything leafy and green, and the houseplants were getting nervous.

Some folks think winter vegetables are boring and repetitive, but we’re just going to have to agree that they’re wrong to disagree. Each leaf has its own unique flavor and texture that makes the right recipe pop.

So what have we been doing with the nutty arugula, giant collards, and two vibrant bags of spinach that came home with us?

Picked up a few more essentials — apples from Champion Farms and a couple growlers from Maltitude — to make it through this week’s bitter cold snap. Bring on those twenty degree nights, Winter Storm Octavia. We and our full pantry laugh in your general direction.
