Bklink: Organic Lettuce Frog

The Park Slope Food Coop prides itself on serving organic produce and, at least in one case, it includes a very hearty frog. The frog traveled from South Florida to the Park Slope Food Coop in some lettuce and then spent three days in a Prospect Heights fridge. "Rather than get hopping mad, Brechbuhler and daughter Orla, 7, made their new amphibian amigo a home-away-from home in a jar filled with lettuce leaves, water and fruit flies they corralled from a nearby garden." Happy ending.--NYDN

people in this country get freaked out when their lettuce isn't industrially machine-washed. they even re-wash themselves! i lived in vienna for years and bought produce every day from a farmer's stand, and beetles and worms would routinely crawl out of my dirty, farm-grown romaine.

I love this frog and the story, but, it needs a better place than a jar. Maybe it could be a prix fixe on Smith Street...OK..JUST KIDDING!!!!!
