Last week, I collected the veggies from my garden. Count them…..two sugar snap peas and three tomatoes. I ate them slowly and savored every bite.
We do try to have a small garden. We manage to grow enough mint and rosemary to put it into every dish. However, that just wasn’t cutting it! I want fresh veggies. A friend recently told me about a CSA in our community. I had done a little research in the past about the local CSA’s in my area but didn’t pursue it further.
Today I received my first box. As soon as I posted this picture on Facebook, a question and answer session began!
So….what is a CSA?
CSA stands for community supported agriculture. What does that mean?
It means that you pledge to support a local farmer’s business by buying his produce throughout the season.
Some CSA’s require that members work some hours each month on the farm. Others do not. That’s the one I chose. 😉
I just get all happy knowing the my food that is on my table tonight was grown and picked by a local farmer and that by purchasing it, I have also helped that family.
If you’d like to find a CSA in your area, I think this post from the Department of Agriculture will help you to get started on your search.
Now the next question: What ever will I do with all those peppers?
