What is a CSA?
At work today, we had a CSA Farmer come to the office! However, he is doing things a little different and I am so, so glad! He is doing more of a 'brown bagging' style! We can pick and choose what we like! I was able to get double green beans and some green tomatoes (I'd been looking for green tomatoes all week!). On a plus side, I don't have to get what I don't need/can't use. Basically I got about 10lbs of beans and 5 lbs of tomatoes for $13!! I will be canning those this weekend along with all the other things I have planned (it won't take long!). It's going to be a very busy weekend!!
Why participate in a CSA? Well, you support your local farmer, they usually are organic when they do a CSA (double check to be sure! - mine is!) and you get the freshest produce!! It's a win-win situation!!
