Romeritos, Again

I'm really liking the romeritos here.  They're not at all wimpy in any way and there are lots of interesting ways to cook them.  Last night I just sauteed them in garlic and olive oil and they were delicious.  I wish their growing season was longer, but I'll enjoy them for another month or two, I hope.

I am having trouble getting my brain wrapped around what's in season.  I'm so used to carrots, cabbage, and potatoes in the winter, but that's not what's cheap here.  I am not used to tomatoes and avocados in the winter, but they don't cost any more than my usual winter vegetables.
