So while this is automatically posting, I am running the Ojai Festival Box Office. Friends in So Cal, come see me. We still have great programs that you can get into featuring some of the most fascinating contemporary avant garde music written today. Also, I run the friendliest and most efficient Box Office you can imagine, which is worth a visit in and of itself.
OK, back to food.
I know that I often say that things “defy description,” largely because I’m too lazy to describe them. In this case, it’s really true though. We got the biggest chard ever this week. Imagine the biggest piece of chard you have ever seen, and triple that. That’s what we got. State-fair-prize-winning gigantic leaf chard. Here’s a picture, with an egg for perspective. I thought of holding it up in front of my face, but those pictures didn’t turn out well.
Kale makes a resurgence
Radicchio returns too!
Rutabaga – more hoorays!
2 tiny inexplicable broccoli (perhaps they are compensating for the overwhelming chard?)
Gosh, I wish I had one. My best idea is to see what Sam uses while I’m staying up in Ojai working at the Festival, and to host a big dinner party next week to work through whatever is left. Maybe we’ll give a few things away. Most of it will keep for a while, so we might just have a very full next week!
