Going Organic

On Tuesday I picked up my first basket of organically grown produce from MogoOrganic. I was so excited! I didn't have any idea what to expect. I wasn't disappointed! Look at all this great stuff!! Oh. My. Goodness!!! The lettuce variety was AWESOME! Chopped up the radishes for the salad. I'm here to tell you that there is nothing like the "heat" that comes from a garden-fresh radish! Know what I mean??? Green onions -- to die for! Sweet sweet strawberries!! Perky little yellow pixie zinnia. See her peeking out of the basket? Haven't tried the garlic scapes yet - they are just fun to look at! And then there was the kale. (I say "was" because it's gone now!) When Morgan (Mogo's Diva Gardener and Owner) was reviewing the contents with me, she came to the kale and I said, "What do I do with kale?" So she whipped the orange MogoOrganic Newsletter out of my basket and showed me the recipes she'd included for using the garlic scapes, basil and strawberries (for a cocktail!), and kale. She assured me that the recipe for the kale was The Best. So, I made it. While it looked like something that should be raked up in the yard come late October, it was So.Amazingly. Good. Crispy and kinda greenish-brown and just a little salty! Whoda thunk? Even my husband ate it --- and liked it! Alot! Can't wait to see what I get in my basket the next time! Only problem is, I have to wait 2 whole weeks!!!


  1. Love fresh radishes! Bought some at the Farmer's Market last week! And then we got Kale at the one on Saturday! Fresh veggies - YUM!

    Cute new template!

  2. Save some of those radishes for me. You are right about the taste and heat from radishes fresh from the garden.
