First day, CSA.


This year we joined a CSA. CSA = Community supported agriculture. We paid a certain amount to a local farm for a 'share' in the farm, and every week they deliver a box of goodies to our door. I wanted to do this last year when I was all making baby food for Owen and wanted him to eat only fresh, organic produce (now I am happy if he eats ANYTHING), but I thought about it too late and we weren't able to get in.

We are doing this through Timberwood Organics. They sell at some local farmers markets, but not at the Durham one, I don't think. Unless I missed it.

Anyway, today our first box came and it was super exciting. We got kale, spinach, salad mix, braising greens (a mix of greens), parsley (curly parsley though. I am really a flat parsley kinda girl) and cilantro, and carrots and radishes.

I am going to be eating some awesome salads this week! I have been hoarding recipes for kale as well, in anticipation.

We were thinking of doing that here in Berkeley! We have a friend in Oakland who does it and really likes it except that she's had a hard time figuring out what to do with all of the turnips. ;)

I totally just heard about this on Manic Mommies. I want to do this.
