The Daily EO: June 20th, 2012

I’ve been crazy excited about my first CSA basket.  I don’t really know why.  Last night I was cutting the strawberries for an arugula salad and I found myself chanting to myself “I’m saving the world”.  Now buying a CSA share from a local farm is probably not saving the world, but it feels like it.  It makes me feel good.  It makes me feel like I am supporting the little guy.  I’m a good person everyone!  A GOOD PERSON!  (please tell your friends and neighbours)

Our First Box (we have a half-share):
– 4 liter heaped basket of strawberries
– a head of bok choi
– bunches of  arugula
– a bag of lettuce mix

Is there anything better than ripe Strawberries fresh from the farm?  They just melt in your mouth and provide so much flavour and kick off summer.
