Community Supported Agriculture

Our CSA- or Community Supported Agriculture- is Growing Wild Farm and we love them! Every week they bring us a bounty of beautiful, yummy veggies. Just look at this weeks delivery:





Salad mix, Snow Peas, Red Head Lettuce, Kohlrabi, Cabbage, Green onions, Chioggia Beets, Cherries!

I am very excited to cook those lovely beets and eat them up with some oil and vinegar and some blue cheese! With the cabbage and kohlrabi I plan to make a slaw for our 4th of July celebration. If the cherries do not get gobbled up, they will be added to the fresh fruit tarts I plan to make for my father-in-laws birthday.

I love the surprise and the challenge of the weekly veggies. I also especially love that they deliver the veggies in biodegradable/ compostable bags (something like these )! Why can't everyone use these? Thank you Sheila and Andre for all that you do!
