Picture it, sliced with fresh basil — my mouth’s watering!

How about a  fresh tomato salad with basil and balsamic — maybe a touch of garlic?

Precious gifts from the soil of Long Island.  There’s no place I’d rather shop locally for my vegetables than Meyer’s Farm in Woodbury.

It’s easy to THINK POSITIVELY and eat properly with these on my kitchen counter.  Today is another Day #1, and it will absolutely, positively be a great day!
