One of my favorite things so far about this summer besides our success in the garden has been our CSA. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is a program we are participating in for the first time this year. Basically, you purchase a “share” of a local farm and every week in the summer, you get to share in the bounty of said farm. It has been so fun to see what we get each week! Every week is different, so it’s really been teaching me how to improvise in the kitchen and use up what I already have.
People are right when they tell you that fresh, local produce is unlike anything you can find in the grocery store. It’s so much more flavorful and delicious. The carrots taste like carrots (and the snozzberries taste like snozzberries) !!
