Hi my name is Marianne Gries, welcome to Art is the Handmaid of Human Good. I use this space to write about and share pictures of things that interest me. That includes my life in Lowell, my adventures in car-lite living, the food I cook and eat, my dogs, home improvement projects, vacations, knitting, and interesting things and places I see and visit. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I’m curious from your photo – what is a bitter melon?

    • It is texturally similar to a cucumber and it tastes (as the name implies) bitter. It is common in Asian cooking and is grown by one of the Cambodian farmers that participates in our CSA. I’d never seen, heard of, or tasted it before moving to Lowell but now I’m quite fond of it.

  2. Yum! Our share this week was great also, we got a cantaloupe, which I can’t wait to open up.
