I participate in a Community Supported Agriculture group that my friend Sasha clued me into. I love the variety of the foods we get and also the fresh local tastes. Each Wednesday we pick up our share at a drop off point and discover what we will be eating that week. We participate from May though the end of the Summer crops. Our CSA has three seasons: Spring, Summer, and Fall. We have had to adjust our eating style a little bit to accommodate for the foods that come in the box and we never know what will show up in a box on any given week. Both of these we count as positives and not negatives to participating in the CSA. I highly recommend looking in to a program like this in your area.

Just look at these amazing tomatoes! We had more than we could eat this week, so I decided to make some tomato sauce with them. Into the freezer went the sauce and out came whatever we needed for the recipe of the night.
These are just beautiful!
