OK, I am officially desperate for color and freshness now. I am resorting to taking photos in the grocery store!
This reminds me of my childhood when the root cellar was getting empty and we were down to potatoes, onions and turnips....waiting for those first greens of spring, usually dandelions, which we cooked with salt pork and thought it was a feast.

A good amount of different colours in just two "white" vegetables. I fancy a stew for tea now....................

The days when vegetables didn't get flown in from exotic places... The title is spot on.

But that is what we got on the menu now!
our last onions, spuds and parsnips and carrots... I just buy some leeks and 'winnebagos' as Chris calls the rutabagas as our own were too small this year.

Actually, the frost has improved the parsnips. I buy some oranges and lime too top up the diet. I think flying veggies in from the other side of the world is costly and we don't really need it. Oranges come from Spain, they come by lorryloads.

I agree Annette. I try to buy local as much as possible, unfortunately here there is not much local produce here at this time of year, its all still under snow. We are beginning to see vegetables and fruit from the south though.

They look the same as the red rooster potatoes we get in our store here Joline.
Perhaps I had their brothers and sisters for my Sunday dinner !!
Good shot.

LOL-- a ? Lorrie load ? truck load of oranges from any where they are grown driven to Maine would spoil before they got there--- Super markets help at this time of year!

Another trip down memory lane....my grandfather would walk to town for the staples like tea and sugar. He would usually bring back one orange. An exotic treat if there ever was one!

We had a root cellar too - on the far - I remember in the early spring the eyes on those potatoes were growing roots! Back then we only had potatoes, carrots and rutabagas - I think we bought onions. Norway has come a ways with vegetable selections these days!
