Doesn’t this look fabulous?
I can’t believe I get all this for just $20! Dirty onions and all. I look forward to Wednesdays since those are the days I get to pick up my colorful CSA box during the week.
In case you didn’t know, you can participate in a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program where you can buy shares of produce from a farm, then you pick it up weekly (or bi-weekly) at a location near your house. Or at least it’s near in my case. My CSA is Wood Duck Farm, and I think they’ve been great. A CSA is a great way to stay in touch with the seasons, try new foods and support a local business. I really like the idea of supporting small, family-owned farms.
Oh, and after being cleaned, the dirty onions will go into my very cute new onion sack (the middle one – the smaller is for garlic/shallots and the larger for potatoes). It helps them stay in a cool, dry place for storage and helps me stay organized, which I love.
