Last week we tried a lot of new and exciting foods. A few classes tried our yellow cucumbers and corn. But the real hit was our okra. Sauteed with salt, pepper, and olive oil.
I was shocked by how everyone enjoyed it so much.
and I didn't even have to pan fry it for them to like it!
The above photo of our okra next to store bought okra speaks volumes.
When you buy or harvest organic produce locally you impact our environment in a positive way, as it does not have to travel 1,000 of miles to arrive on your plate.
You are also eating produce that is highly nutritious as it does not lose nutrition value on its way over to your market.
This weeks menu will consist of Okra, nasturtium cucumber salad, and a recipe for our pumpkins!
