I’m not sure if I told you peeps about the CSA box I decided to order or not. I could check my old blog posts, but that would be waaaay too much effort.
So, here’s the deal, I decided to order a CSA box! CSA is Community Supported Agriculture…basically you sign up to receive a box (you can pick the size) of various produce items (you can pick your favorites) to be delivered to you on a regular basis (you pick how often).
Jonathan and I decided on a mix of fruits & veggies to come once every 2 weeks. We told the service about our dislike for beets, mushrooms, and lima beans, and they don’t ever add those icky things to our box. The items that they add are whatever happens to be in season from local farms.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to see vegetables in my life!
Our first box contained:3 oranges 1 cantaloupe 1 small box strawberries 2 avocados 5 tomatoes 5 sweet gypsy peppers (excited to try these!) 6 carrots 10 baby gold potatoes 1 head of romaine
Before you get too excited, it does cost a bit more than grocery store produce. We paid $25 for these local organic fresh goodies to be delivered. Worth. It. Especially for us city folk.
Check out Yelp! to find one in your area.
Do you have a CSA box? How do you squeeze fruits and vegetables into your meals?
