CSA- Week #1

Today was our first pick up from our local CSA. We got ourselves some arugula, kale, spring mix, braising greens, petite lettuce head, garlic tops and radishes.

I am so pleased to be able to participate in this wonderful experience.  We are buying organic, fresh and beautiful produce from a farm only 4o minutes away. We met the founder of our local csa and the farm owner of Agua Linda Farms.  I just can’t express how good it feels to support these wonderful people.

What is even better, is that our kids get to experience this too.  It was so exciting for them (we built it up quite a bit) that when we got home with our produce, they were very eager to try it all.  It made my heart swell to see my little guys munch on radishes(!!) and fresh lettuce leaves.

We had an excellent dinner too.  Potatoes with kale, harvest grains (from Trader Joe’s) and mixed greens with balsamic vinegar/oil dressing.  It was delicious! Everything tastes better when you know exactly where it comes from. We will be visiting the Aqua Linda Farm on Saturday to see farming in action.

    Wow! Beautiful veggies ~ I’m so jealous because our CSA won’t start until late May or early June whenever the strawberries are ready. Enjoy!

    That looks divine. I had forgotten to sign up for the CSA near my grandparents, thank you for the reminder.

    Wow, those grains look awesome. As does everything else! I’ve been trying to do the CSA thing, but no one ever calls me back or returns my emails so that may be abandoned soon. I guess there’s always the farmers’ markets, I just found the best farm produce I’ve ever seen at one just 7 miles away, and will be trying to talk them into a CSA type program. Enjoy the freshness! What was the verdict on the radishes?
