Gardening Goodness


My sister told me about CSA and how she was signing up this year. She suggested that I do too. I've been a giddy girl every since. A couple of my sisters and I are signing up for this summer. We will get weekly produce from local gardens. The produce will depend on what is growing, so really...you don't know what you're getting. From June to October I will be filling my kitchen with freshness, exploring recipes with the produce of the week, and feeling good about supporting local farming.

My roommates and I are also going to attempt a garden in our backyard. We have a great patch that gets lots of hours of sunshine and we want to give it a try. (Now only if this ridiculous snow would stop!!!)
