Spring has sprung here on California’s central coast. My urban container garden is getting an early start this year.
The clivia’s budding
& I woke to find that this little succulent had burst into flower
& the dwarf lilac that I’d given up for dead had shot out little leaves overnight. Nature rocks!

A few months back I discovered the wonders of the harvest box, a weekly offering of fresh, organic, locally-grown produce.
How can food this beautiful fail to inspire all sorts of yummy creations?
I love the way the selection changes with the seasons & introduces me to new flavors & textures too. Suddenly I’m craving once foreign veggies like jicama & kabocha squash.I get my harvest boxes from Rutiz Farms. Shopping at their outdoor stand feels way better than visiting a supermarket. They even post recipes in their newsletter, which is how I know that balsamic roasted kabocha squash is awesome!
Look at all the goodies I found in my box last week!
