I bought these beautiful veggies on the farm where they were grown only 5 miles from my house - Gotreaux Family Farms. Once a week I try to get myself and the kids over to the farm when they have their produce for sale. I absolutely love coming home with a bag full of fresh veggies that were just harvested! What I buy at the store (which was probably grown hundreds of miles from here) pales in comparison in color and flavor. It's such a great experience for the kids to go and see where our food is grown, too. If you live in the area, check out the website and stop by the farm on Wednesdays! If you don't live here, maybe you can find and support local growers in your own area.
