While Evan generally does all of the cooking in our house, I generally have to make the decision as to what we are actually eating. Otherwise, we’d eat burritos or grilled cheese every night. After reading about the awesomeness of CSAs all over the internet, last week we decided to join a CSA, Fully Belly Farm.
We were super excited on Saturday morning to pick up our first delivery. The produce we got is awesome…all organic, super fresh and tasty. We’re really enjoying getting to eat such a diverse mix of veggies.
For a bit more each week, our CSA provides us with fresh cut flowers. We got some irises (we actually get to pick which flowers we want at the pick-up site, which I think is really neat) and they are quite lovely.
We have to keep them (and all flowers) on a high shelf most the time, however, or this happens….
When we come up with new dishes to celebrate these great veggies, I’ll try and blog about them. So far, we’ve had a couple of great salads and pot roast with rutabagas and carrots. Tonight we’ll eat the asparagus and tomorrow Evan is making stir fry with the tat soi. Yum!
Also, our CSA sells yarn. How cool is that?
