Last week’s storm evidently did a number on Santa Cruz County farms. So no tomatoes or berries this week, but everything else looks great.

Clockwise from bottom left: basil, onions, apples, dandelion greens, radishes, lettuce, collards, beets, broccoli, potatoes, spinach, eggs, carrots, and peppers.

I got deferred again today from donating blood because my hemoglobin level was only 11 (when it needs to be 12.5.) Clearly I should be eating more of these leafy greens.

As a consolation, I had lunch at The Kitchen Table, a locavorean kosher restaurant in downtown Mountain View (whose website plays music upon loading, be warned.) Although I think the dinner and brunch menus look more interesting than that at lunch, I enjoyed my portobella burger and pimientos de padrón. Their dessert menu is also intriguing.

These are all dairy-free, and the squash creme caramel was much more squashy than cremey, but I enjoyed it.
