What is a CSA? Community Supported Agriculture is a healthy, local way for you to be a real part of what you eat. You pay a given amount of money up front before the planting action gets going, the farmer uses the money to plant and grow, and then for a fixed amount of weeks you are given a “share” of the farms products. Sometimes, when the season is good, you are even offered extras. The photo above is our half share plus extras. We have 22 weeks, and we are on week 2.
We pick up our CSA on Wednesdays, so as a visual representation of how awesome weekly, organic, fresh picked vegetables are, I will be putting a picture and listing up on Wednesdays. This will hopefully encourage everyone to consider a CSA next season!
This is the kick off of “What’s Cookin’ Wednesdays” (I know… today is Thursday…but in the future this is what it will be.), where you see my palette for the week.
