This week was International Women and Beauty Day. Sexism aside, I love beauty in all its forms, but especially in the Japanese form, which creates balance in opposing places and looks for inner beauty through all of nature. The imperfections create the desire, as my Kabuki teacher and Mentor Shozo Santo always said.
I wish we had Japanese produce this week, rather, we have the first crop of Armenian Basil, from seeds brought in form the old country. It's a stunning shade of dark red and has a distinct anise flavor.
And we've still got our Enchanted Mix Salad, Incredibly fresh and crunchy Romaine, Spring Spinach is really coming along now, as is the Italian Pesto Basil and red and white icicle radishes. Come by Sandstone Cellars in Mason, Texas for our last Saturday Sale before we start up at the Mason Farmer's Market on Friday April 15, 5pm
