I found out about Harvest Community Food’s curated CSA program. You can’t beat it – it is curated, meaning that they gather the best available treats of the week from various suppliers and put together a bag of groceries. Also, you can sign up for 1 or for the season. I tell you – there is something about the mystery and excitement of a CSA box/bag that I love. What am I going to get? How am I going to cook it? Will it be terrible?
I am also excited because the last CSA I was in involved in was in Huntsville – where snow is still on the ground – so I am exciting different offerings and different tastes from our different climates.
This week I got honey, 1/2 dozen eggs, sunflower sprouts, watercress, chard, kale, potatoes, stinging nettles (!!), and beets. Super Excited about the honey because it is so good (yum, blueberry) and local which should help Emile deal with his seasonal allergies.
