CSA involves prepaying a local farmer to get weekly deliveries of fresh produce, and we just started with a local farm, Riverdog Farm. Each week, we get a full box of whatever is in season delivered to a location near us. In the last two weeks, we have gotten turnips, kale, chard, tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, squash, bok choi, broccoli, onions, green bean, chives, & eggplant, which has been converted to soups, salads, pasta toppings, spreads, and more!

The food seems to taste richer, and better, than other produce (yes, it may be the placebo effect, but it still works), and, at $20/week, the cost is essentially the same as buying each of those ingredients at the grocery store. The bonus is that we’ve tried many more vegetables than we would normally buy at a grocery store, just because we feel obligated to use whatever comes in the box.

If you have one of these farms near you, you should give it a try!
