Local This Week

2/15-2/19

February is a time when we start to dream about spring. Farmers pull out seed catalogues. Potted hyacinths appear in grocery stores. The days get ever longer and brighter (even if they stay bitter cold). A special treat that hints at all the new life that start to emerge in just a few weeks can be found in Dogma boxes this week.

Pea shoots brighten this week's boxes with a burst of green. The delicious young pea plants have the faintly sweet flavor of pea pods, and are crunchy and refreshing. Farmer Deb Barrett of Allen Farms delivers the pea shoots this week. She has grown herbs, flowers and vegetables using organic methods for the last 25 years on the farm's 50 acres of fields, as well as in seven greenhouses equipped for year-round production. Several of the vegetable varieties grown at Allen Farms are rare heirloom varieties, and pains are taken to ensure soil and plant health.

We think Mr. Washington would approve.
