I'm glad you like it Leigh. This post was inspired by your request ages ago. Also check out the new Vegetable ID tab under the header. I hope it helps CSA members identify the contents of their boxes and know how to handle the produce.
Cheers.

There is plenty of gozo at Rio Gozo Farm. That is JOY in Spanish and joy is one of the most dependable products we have. Gozo is commonly found in gardens and farms. Once you get a little gozo up and going it is very tolerant of most pests, withstands dry periods, and grows with a modicum of fertilizer. After gozo becomes a staple of one's diet, it goes with about anything. Actually folks crave it so much it is a wonder everyone does not have a patch of it growing close at hand. Grab up some gozo and get with the flow.
