Wash Twice

So the local food season has started up again.  Last week was the first of our CSA.  Mostly greens show up in the box for the first few weeks.  This time, it was a bag of spinach, a bag of arugula, and another bag of random lettuce.

Note to self:  wash it well.

Yesterday I made a gardenburger sandwich with some of the spinach (which I had washed, but apparently not thoroughly enough).  About three bites from the end, I looked down at some spinach that had fallen out onto my hand–and there was about 1/3 of a daddy-long legs.

After I finished brushing my teeth, I resolved to wash all the local, farm-fresh greens, complete with authentic local PA dirt and bugs, TWICE.
