The Chef and I recently became members of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), Eating with the Seasons. This means we get a bag of fresh, organic, locally grown produce delivered to our neighborhood each week. We selected the “extra small” bag which is 6 items for $18. Although in most cases, “1 item” equates to more than a single piece of fruit or vegetable. For example, in our first bag this week we picked up: 1 bunch of kale (my new favorite vegetable), 4 lemons, 4 white peaches, a container of strawberries, squash medley, and 8 red potatoes.
The Chef picked up the bag because I had a client meeting and dinner on Wednesday, but he left everything in tact for me so that when I got home later that night I could unwrap our presents. It’s going to be like Christmas (or Bethtober!) every Wednesday!!!
I can definitely tell a difference in the color, quality and taste of organic produce, can you?
Today is a (much needed) rest day; tomorrow I tackle 16 miles!
