- Magenta spreen
Along with everything listed above, I’ve had the opportunity to try several varieties of plants like tomatoes, snap peas, raspberries*, strawberries, kale, lettuce and so much more. With this, I was able to compare differences in look, taste, and texture.
*Raspberries – specifically red raspberries of the Josephine variety – have become my new favorite fruit.
I didn’t have to go abroad to shock my palate. I was right down the road in Dexter, Michigan, but this internship exposed me to so many new and delicious plants which I will never forget. For every new food I was privileged enough to try, I know I played a big role in growing it. Somehow being involved in the process makes them taste just a little bit better.
