Shipping is a terrible thing to do to vegetables. They probably get jet-lagged, just like people.
If you eat you owe it to yourself to cultivate horticultural skills to enhance your culinary explorations, and to save vegetables and fruits from jet-lag, or worse yet– road rage!
Recipes are only as good as the ingredients used in them, and fresh, ripe, homegrown produce that’s neither tired nor angry is the gold standard.
Not prepared to dig up lawn? A pot of culinary herbs such as basil, oregano, and chives is a good beginning, with a caveat: culinary herbs are gateway edibles and may lead to a full-blown gardening addiction.
