"The beet is the most intense of all vegetables," according to novelist Tom Robbins.

We've been using the beet in our ads, on our t-shirts and in our pithy newsletter headlines forever. So we're right there with Suzie's Farm in wondering if the beet will forever go on.

Sweet & Tendril

SWEET AND TENDRIL In most areas of the country, sweet pea tendrils don't turn up until the spring, but with San Diego's fantastically long growing season we're already seeing them at our farmers' markets courtesy of Suzies Farm. The tender shoots are wonderful on sandwiches, to add a little crunch to bruschetta or as a bed under sauteed scallops. Cooked them gently in a stir fry, saute with garlic and a little butter to use as a side dish, or whirl into a pretty green coulis to drizzle over your favorite grilled fish from Poppa's.
