The best idea ever

The bf and I have joined a CSA – which is short hand for saying that we bought food shares at a local farm cooperative in Lancaster County. For approximately $20 per week (paid in full upfront), we get 8-10 food shares, which this week are:

1 1/2 pound bag of baby lettuce mix
1 bunch French breakfast radishes
1 head bok choy
1 bunch pea tendrils
1 1/4 pound bag baby red Russian Kale
1 8oz package cremini mushrooms
1 1/4 pound bag mustard greens
1 bunch scallions

It’s cheap, it’s organic and it supports local farms in the area. But of course, there is the taste, which is absolutely divine. They harvest everything 2 days before we get it, so everything just has a richer taste that you can’t buy in stores, or even some farmer’s markets.

My only regret is that I think we should have bought 2 full shares, and doubled up on everything. With the way that we are eating veggies on our new diet, all the stuff that we get will be gone by Sunday or Monday.
