What a beautiful picture of salad. By the way, I also read both of your articles and you have compiled a great list of flowers and vegetables in the NYTimes article.

Great read.



What a gorgeous salad! This is Rachel with Sasquatch books and I have a quick request. We are trying to boost our online presence, so we're hoping you'd be able to post a link to our blog on your site.
