There’s something about all the wonderful, delectable fresh produce that is starting to surround us that just lights me up. It also makes me a little bit frenetic as I try and use as much of it as humanly possible before the fresh local version of it is (wah!) over! Yes, I know that you can get pretty much anything and everything in the supermarket these days, but it’s just not the same.
