Winter arrives in December but I am seeng the changes in my vegetable section at the Sacramento Natural Food Coop. Not as many choices or freshness available. Sure the root vegetables are arriving and apples, pears, grapes. Yet, I miss my leafy vegetables. They are not the same as summer ones -- fresh. Tomatoes will be hard and unflavorful. Cucumbers look withered, brocolli stumby. Of course, the prices go up too. Alas!
If anyone has any feedback or suggestions, I'd love to hear 'em.
