September 29th CSA Harvest & Pick-Up

Over heard in the gardens today:

"How do you pick-up your vegetables from the CSA?"
"You just have to turnip."

Rain makes everything funnier (that's a Vancouverism, as of now).

Tokyo Whites: delicious and pun-tastic.

Today's items:
- Rosemary
- Turnips, Tokyo Whites and Purple Tops
- Beans, Carson Yellas
- Kale, Winterbor
- Radishes, mixed varieties
- Asian Pears, aka Apple-pears

It's cold and flu season. If you are not planning on cooking with your fresh rosemary and you feel a sore throat coming on, boil a kettle of water, throw a sprig or two of rosemary in a teapot, let steep for 10 minutes and enjoy. Rosemary (like most herbs in the Apiaceae (mint) family - thyme, sage, basil, mint) is antiviral, antimicrobial and a vasodilator. So it helps keep the cold and flu bugs at bay and increases the flow of oxygen to the brain....win-win (#plantsmakelifebetter).
