Another live herb!  I asked about this when I picked up the share and was told that we will be getting different herbs for the first 4-5 weeks with the idea that we will plant them and be able to pick herbs as needed throughout the year.  Very nice!

A couple organic items were in the share this week. The farm practices sustainable agriculture for everything and strives to grow organic where possible. I will start marking the organic items in green on the share list to make it easier to see how often they show up.

Lots of parsley this week, using that all up without putting a huge amount of garnish on everything will take some creativity.  Ideas are welcome!
