I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting to write about this exciting new thing since I signed up for it in March. I wanted to have a picture to lend clarity to the situation. The time has finally come.
I signed up for a CSA share.
I learned about Community Sustainable Agriculture (CSA) last year from my friend at work who has supplied endless amounts of fodder for this blog. Basically you sign up to buy a share of a farm’s (or several farms) bounty for the growing season. Folks from the farm will drop off the boxes of fruit, veggies and eggs to various pick-up sites throughout the city and BAM! You have fresh, organic produce each week! How fun is that? Another work friend and I split a full share so we will each pick up our share every other week.
I’ll be missing two weeks for my upcoming Eurobender, so it was my turn to start things off last night.
This is what I got.
Fun factor: 10+
