Wow! That's such an awesome idea, and the produce looks delicious. I can't wait til my local market starts up!! Hope you and your daughter have an amazing trip. :)

Nice basket! Drop me an email when you get back. I've some some great ideas for your feast and some questions to ask you about it.

Sounds very healthy and delicious!

Oh fab! Don't you just love fresh produce? We have a huge garden--one treat I discovered is making wraps (tuna or salmon) with the big spinach leaves.
Have you tried the bags that are supposed to extend the life of your produce?

First, everyone, let me apologize for my delinquency in responding!! Sadly, I'm STILL catching up from vacation, and life's just seems to be extraordinarily busy these days....

We had a fabulous time...our best trip to the Cape yet. AND, we got to enjoy this great produce, as the delivery came the day before we left!

Dave-
Hey, great to find you on Twitter! Love reading your tweets... interesting as always. I'm also behind on cleaning out my personal emails - will hopefully send you an email today or tomorrow.

Kelly-
You're back...yay! I've missed hearing from you, but definitely understand the need to limit computer time - it just speeds by!

Jacki-
Love the wrap idea - I would never have thought of that. And no, haven't tried those special produce bags yet...I've always wondered if they worked???

Has twitting and tweeting taken you away from your blog, or did you just melt away in the heat of the summer?

Having all that produce delivered almost looks better than growing it at home. It must be great for the farmers to know that they have steady customers.

Jeannette-
I know, right! FB and Twitter, for BOTH work and personal, have definitely distracted me from my blog. I keep meaning to get back into it, and definitely have fodder for posts - it's just a matter of finding a little free time somehow! But, thank you for noticing - that means you're visiting and reading, and I definitely appreciate that.
