These are gorgeous. It is art in the form of a root vegetable, color beyond my wildest beta-carotene-dreams, and I am in love with them:
Besides my newfound love of purple carrots (which, by the way, were too woody for snacking raw, so let me just put that out there for you who had dipping in mind!), I was also able to score a great deal on some strawberries at another farmer's market. I got 4 little green baskets of strawberries for such a deal that I had to photograph them as I was washing to cut and freeze them (some to eat now, the rest to freeze, can't have any going bad on me!). It was a lot of strawberries, and I am now smoothie-equipped!
Well, as this is also my glass blog, it must marry up to the obsession somehow: I'm now inspired to see what vegetables I can represent well in glass, as I already have two glass carrots (photo to come, promise!), have made a few other veggies, and will likely try for a gardener's necklace SOON. Stay tuned. And, eat fresh and local if you can. :)
