I get so excited every time I pick it up, its like a present… what will be inside?
Honestly, I had no idea this would be my reaction when I signed up for this CSA.
In the past I shopped mindlessly at the grocery store not caring where my food came from, content with the fact that I was buying healthy fruits and vegetables in the “organic section” (with food from very far away).
Now I know exactly where each and every unpestified bite was grown, just 10 miles up the road.
Its like a food power trip for me!
This box had rutabagas, multi colored carrots, green leaf lettuce, turnips, gourmet lettuce, radish, leeks, rainbow chard, desert artichokes, pixie tangerines and a very informational news letter.
Our letter tells us members what farmer David and Michelle are up to, like laying potential of their chickens and explaining the size, what is being planted next and how long it will take.
Did you know it takes 3 full years to get a crop of asparagus? first year no harvest, second year a few spears and third year, boom… they are ready to go!
And thanks to this letter that also includes recipes, I know what to do with some of this food I’ve never seen before.
In May there will be a planting party/open house, with activities, the planting of trees and vines, brunch, dinner and finishing the day with a members meeting. Unfortunately I wont make it to that fun day with my food source, but we will have a guest post & pictures by farmers David and Michelle for you to see!
Now you know where my food power trip comes from,
does your food give you this reaction and this much fun?
