purple scallions, strawberries, blueberries, peas, a blueberry scone, fleur de sel caramels (obsessed), local honey, and tuscan kale

Wow, so very....those peas look like they were dumped from a can, the blueberries look like something that might hang in Texas, and I am not talking about a tree, and those things that are supposedly strawberries, well, bless your heart for supporting your local farmers, sad as that might be. Oh the glory of living in Southern California!

That is what local strawberries look like in Germany, France, and Switzerland, too.
I dunno what you think you are getting in Southern California, but i guess its local "industrial" strawberries for the national and international markets.
If I want that kind of strawberry here in Switzerland, the berries come from Spain.  They are cheap. large, succulent looking, and vary i taste from a crunchy lightly sweet "fruit rind" taste, to "strawberry, but not sweet", to "wow, amazing!".   
And buying them puts locals farmers out of business.
And they come with a carbon footprint.
And pesticides....

Bon appetite.

I would mention Rachael here but what if next week she turns out to be a misogynist?  Best to bite my tongue.
