What’s In The Bag? – July 28, 2009

A few years ago, a friend told us about Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Basically, a CSA is a farm or cooperative of farms that will deliver a share of their produce every week to their members. It’s like having the farmer’s market delivered to you! We agreed that we should do some research and join a CSA.

After spending some time at Local Harvest’s website, we determined that we decided to try Eating with the Seasons. We chose Eating with the Seasons for several reasons. They have a delivery location close to my work, all of their produce is organically grown, and unlike many other CSAs, they let you pick the items in your share every week. Another great feature of Eating with the seasons is they sell locally produced specialty foods.

I thought it would be a great idea to feature the produce I receive every week from the CSA. I will call the features “What’s in the Bag?”. I really like to encourage others to consider joining a CSA and I think showing off the produce is a great way to do that.

What’s in the Bag?:

Nectarines

Avocados

Summer squash medley

Strawberries

Lemons

Onions

Carrots

Balsamic vinegar: This is seriously the best balsamic I ever tasted. It comes from Oils of Paicines and has been sold out for months. This was the first week they had it back in stock so I ordered two bottles.
