Best Farm to Table


I came across the sign above today at my favorite outdoor farmer’s market. It truly made me laugh out loud and shake my head. For those of you who can’t read the sign, it reads “organic broccoli 79 cent lb ‘friendly reminder, if you take the stem off you will be charged $1.69lb’.

I hear a lot of stories as a clinical social worker and I am happy to report I am often still surprised by people’s antics. I also wonder if Esme, saw the same sign, as her theme for the month is green leafy vegetables. I shared my recipes for Spinach salad and Fruit salad. It is my hope to share them in a massive recipe swap others will be encouraged to eat what’s in season and reminded to check the bargain bin. A good meal does not have to be expensive. Most importantly, I want to encourage others to plant something (below are a few good inspiring posts).

Though if you’re like MSW, I am just looking for a good healthy recipe. Check out these! What’s your favorite green leafy vegetable? I am also really curious about the craziest sign you have come across. Tell me below in the comments or on Instagram with the tag #reallifeofanmsw.

  1. Sorry, did not see your sign mentioned, I pick my theme a month ahead, and I have also started on a new and more healthy diet and that’s also part of the green leafy project. Just decided on this theme for April after all the Festive season’s sugar etc overload. Hope you do not mind this, but it seems like its great minds think alike. Each month have a different theme, so check out the new theme for May which will be released on the 1st of each month. Hope you will be able to participate as well.
