Yay!!!! We Are Joining Our Local CSA!!!!
I cannot tell you how excited I am to be doing this. A friend of mine here in W'burg told me about it and I was in love with the idea instantly! What a wonderful thing to have delicious fresh produce that is all 100% organic and grown locally by independent farmers. I can't wait to start! We will be picking up starting this Thursday and I cannot wait to see what delicious goodies will be in our baskets. The people who run the CSA have a farm with all kinds of animals so the kids will just love it. They also have fresh eggs and honey and plan to add organic dairy products to their line-up! Wow!!! My grocery shopping will change dramatically if this works out well. I can't tell you how much happier I would be to give our money to support local growers rather than big companies. Next thing you know I will be grinding my own wheat...which is something I am actually interested in trying. I love the idea of really getting back to basics and making as much as I can from scratch. I do a lot now but the more the better. I will keep you posted about our CSA experience and all the wonderful local goodies that we will have in our fridge.
I think this may be the summer where I learn a lot about canning. Another thing I have always wanted to try. I am so excited. I can see it now shelves and shelves of homemade tomato sauce, pickles, jams, etc.etc. I'd better get reading up on it. I have a lot to learn!
