I stopped by Chase’s Daily in Belfast one summer afternoon last year and was so pleasantly surprised at the quality of the farm fresh produce offered. I’ve never seen a shallot without a dry paper outer layer (our only option in grocery store chains)! These shallots were so fresh that the roots were still soft and moist. There were bins and bins of fresh picked vegetables, herbs and fruits. And I must say, some of the most gorgeous and best heirloom tomatoes I’ve ever had. The uglier, the better. This to me is an artist tool box of paints. And what I chose to paint when I got home was only up to my imagination…
