when good vegetables go bad 08/02/00

We are lucky that there is a fresh produce stand ten minutes from Elsa's work.  She brought home yellow squash,  peppers, zucchini and cucumbers, as well as lovely home grown tomatoes. We have enjoyed the most succulent peaches.  

It was a surprise when first one of the peppers quickly went bad and then two of the squash.  It took awhile to hit home that we have become accustomed to supermarket vegetables, with their  extended "shelf life" and questionable nutritional value.  These vegetables are as Mother Nature meant them to be.   God bless them!

Good night, one and all, on this hot & humid evening - Grammie Kay
