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.
