An ode to the color purple... I absolutely love that my CSA bag generally has a small bunch of flowers. This week we were given artichoke flowers (you see one of them on the far right), along with some purple ruffly flower that I can't remember the name of even though Cindy from Cub Creek Farms specifically told me (darn short-term memory). Anyway, I supplemented the bouquet with salvia blooms and basil from my garden.
Here's a great trick for flower lovers - add basil to your cut bouquets - it gives a pop of green and smells amazing! (Theresa - if your basil is a success here's another thing to do with it!)
