Community Supported Agriculture

Visit Michelle at the delightful Nature Notes Thursday to learn something fascinating.

I got my first delivery of vegetables today. It had broccoli, snow peas, green onions, lettuce, radishes and garlic scapes. I split most of it with a friend to share the wonderful loot in my box! I eat the broccoli and the snow peas on the way home. Not all of it, but a lot of it. The flavors are so amazing! I didn't offer to split the broccoli or the snow peas.

The produce is all organic and has been rinsed before delivery, so it's OK to nibble.

For information on a CSA near you, go to Local Harvest to get started.

Great link! I found a farmer's market in the next town over, with pick-your-own. Cool!

I love this time of year when we can visit our local farmer's market. Thanks for the link.

I need to find some local organic because you never know what you are getting at the super market as we don't seem to be able to regulate our own safety here....Caron..I hope you know that I consider you to be a special friend and I appreciate your thoughtful comments and humor... Michelle

Susan, I'm so glad you found something nearby.

Eileen, this broccoli isn't like the store stuff for some reason. It tastes like broccoli only better. The farms carrots are the same way.

Denise, the farmer's market in Des Moines opened with 30,000 people this year. It's huge. Come visit.

Michelle, you are such a dear to me. I hope that website can help you find something. You are a special friend to me as well. Have fun this weekend.

Great to get your first delivery of the season. I thought I'd left a comment on this post already but I must be getting senile.
