tiny things = cute

Our CSA haul is pretty exciting this week. It includes 6 adorable artichokes and 2 nopales. I'm skeptical that the tiny artichokes will yield much edible matter but they'll be fun to photograph. Here's a bad iphone preview:

Can you see my battle scar from yardwork? I almost lopped off my fingertip with pruning shears last weekend. It bled A TON and warranted a tetanus shot for me but looks nowhere as painful as Todd's arms - completely covered in scratches from removing deadwood from all of our shrubs. I'll spare you from that image.

And more than likely you're wondering what nopales are. Prickly pear cactus pads! More on that in a few days. Off to hunt for a recipe...
