So...have you ever heard of a CSA? I did about a year ago and tried desperately to get into one, but they were all sold out.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Basically, you buy part of a farm, and once a week, you go to your predetermined location and pick up your share of what was harvested.
Let me tell you what.....IT IS AWESOME!!!!!!!
My CSA is through Breezy Willow Farm, about 28 miles from my town. My pick up location is about 15 minutes from my house.
I get excited with anticipation each week wondering what has been harvested for my family! It's different every week, and four weeks into it, I haven't been disappointed yet! Here was my take this week:
Everything has been so delicious. This week I splurged on some goat cheese gouda. Oh my gosh: Divine!!!!
The day after my CSA pick up I baked some of the kale and enjoyed some of the Everything Sour Dough Bread, and some of the scrumptious goat cheese gouda. And this was my farm fresh lunch:
My body was effusively thanking me for the local, nutritionally dense fare. I've been frequently traveling up and back from Phillie & Cape May over the last two weeks to work on stuff for my FIL, and all the travel does not bode well for good eats. But it sure feels good to eat food so fresh!
In beading news....I am still going to keep working on What's It To Hue? Tuesday. I am getting some nice numbers on the back end, but not a lot of participation....SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I think I will have to kick it up a notch and do a giveaway in conjunction with the hop. The timing on this will work out well, because I'm just about finished with my Pay It Forwards and should have them in the mail next week. Then I'll be ready to put together a bead package related to What's It To Hue? Tuesday. So be on the lookout this Tuesday when I announce my color or color combination and giveaway!
Wishing everyone a great weekend!
