Food Share in Ottawa! Roots and Shoots

I moved to Ottawa in March of this year. I have to say that so far I am loving this city! Among one of the new things I'm trying out, since a new city equals trying new things for me, is being part of a food share. This year I joined the Roots and Shoots Farm share. So far it is going great! We are now in our fourth week of vegetable pick up and I can't wait until Thursday.

Basically how it works is, you choose either to buy a full or a half share. I went all in and got the full share. This means that I have the privilege of getting a nice amount of fresh, organic produce every week until mid October. I took pictures of some of the vegetables we got this past week. Enjoy!

By the way does anyone have any recipes for napa cabbage? I have never prepared this veggie before and have no idea what to do with it. Thanks!
