I do. I renewed my subscription to Spiral Path Farms, our local organic CSA, last week.
I first learned about CSAs last summer, and Joe and I decided to subscribe just days after. We had several reasons for subscribing, most notably that we would get fresher, nicer produce for less than we could buy it at the grocery store.
Each and every Wednesday from July 2 to Thanksgiving, we picked up a box of fresh organic vegetables. We ate and fed our baby fresh, juicy tomatoes picked only days earlier, the sweetest sweet corn we’d ever experienced, and chunks of a wonderfully tender and juicy eggplant. We also ate fresh cabbage, onions, lettuce, spinach, green beans, broccoli, potatoes, peas, and sqaush.
We never found a single food that we disliked.
Our toddler adores fresh vegetables. I think it is largely because she has eaten such perfect versions of them. These aren’t the cardboard varieties that reach our grocery store after a thousand mile trek across continents, but rather flavorful and delicious varieties that were grown less than sixty miles from our home.
We ate vegetables, we canned vegetables, we froze vegetables. We’re still enjoying a few of them. They’re still delicious.
As long as Spiral Path Farms is delivering remotely close to our little town, we’ll be subscribing to their farm. It works for us.
DonÃ¢â‚¬™t forget to stop back on Thursday for GraceÃ¢â‚¬™s Kitchen!
