I just wanted to take a second to appreciate the freshness of Rainshadow Organics CSA produce. How many times have you bought produce at the grocery store and put in the fridge. Then two days later, it’s totally limp, lifeless, and losing nutrition by the minute. I, like most people, have shoved some produce into the back of a drawer, to be totally forgotten and found later in an organic brown puddle, ready to go back to the earth. This just happened to me. I pulled out a bag of greens from the back of the fridge, thinking it would be the worst of the worst bags to open. But low and behold, crisp, fresh, colorful, and bouncy.
This goes to show that 26 days later, Rainshadow produce is still fresh. This bag of greens was picked moments before it made its way to the back of my fridge. This also goes to show that we have no idea how many miles and/or how many weeks it took the grocery store to put that produce on their shelves for it to die in our fridge only two days later. I’m so grateful for the nutritional bounty Central Oregon provides. I’m so grateful for the love that goes into our CSA. This truly is a family, and I am so happy to be a part of it.
Cheers to old and new veggies… because I love them all!
