One of the few delights in my life right now is my semi-monthly produce box from Klesick Family Farms. I get the Northwest box, which provides me with a veritable medley of local organic produce all ripe and ready and sparkling twice a month. It's nothing short of amazing to learn for the first time what's in season when, locally, and to hold (and eat) stuff you'd never find (or buy) in a store.
Meet Seckel pears, tiny and adorable, sweet and juicy, while still providing that crunch you want from a pear. Where do these things come from? Why can't they be at my ghetto Safeway?
And where can I get more?
