A Saturday Morning In Winter...

... what's better than going to buy veggies on a farm in the middle of winter???
For a foodie like me, not much. haha.

We are very lucky to have the Berry Patch Farms in Brighton, Colorado. The owner managed to pull off unheated green houses and grows various vegetables also in winter.

This is what we came home with:

Cannelini Beans
Pop Corn Kernels
5lbs of frozen tomatoes
1lbs frozen Raspberries
Italian Heirloom Onions
Spaghetti squash

And the total was 47$ and some cents. It will last us at least a whole week. YUM!

Buying from your local organic farm is sustainable, you invest in a small business and it keeps your community going! Now check with your local farm if they have a few things they still sell even though it is winter! You might be surprised!

love, n.
