First CSA Week

I was excited about getting our first CSA share from Snow's Bend Farm last week. Boy was it wonderful. We received  the following - Carrots, Radishes, Baby White Turnips, Arugala, Salad Mix, and Mustard Greens. 18 bucks for all of this fresh local and organic produce was a great deal and I suggest everyone who is looking for organic sustaniable produce at a bargain checkout Local Harvest for a CSA near you. I never knew I liked turnips but I roasted these little babies with a bit of balsamic vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper and they were AMAZING

Herb Garden Dreams

I spent all of this past Sunday working on this small bed in my yard. I had to remove hundreds of bulbs from one side and still need to finish the other side. I love organic herbs and veggies but the cost can be hard to swallow. Now I have never grown veggies before but thought giving it a try would be worth it. Like I said it is small so I need to do some research on what would work best out there. If you guys have any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.  To help save money on organic produce our family also joined a local organic CSA and we will be receiving our first share this Thursday and I am super excited to try some new recipes with whatever I receive. The name of the farm is Snow's Bend Farm and it has an amazing reputation for it's organic produce and at 18.00 a week it  seems like a good deal. I will also be planting on Thursday and will take some pics. My 6 year old will be helping me and I am eager to show him this process. I am hoping this will be fun and rewarding for the whole family.
