Looking for a last minute gifts? Here’s an unusual idea…

Garden Recipes

In my experience fresh food really CAN be contagious… but jumping up and down waving fresh kale in people’s faces doesn’t really help people feel the joy of fresh food for themselves. That joy usually starts when someone experiences fresh-off-the-vine crisp flavors… and then the curiosity builds and they eat more… until eventually, they are hooked!
