I haven’t done this in a while. Spreading the goodness!
oh man! i totally just joined a fair shares csa thingie to support local food, in other words, i’m handed a box of random food once a week. but it all comes from within a 50 miles radius of stl. okay maybe it’s 100 miles i don’t remember, but it’s damn close!
i get some weird stuff but it makes cooking even more exciting and challenging. you get so used to buying the same run of the mill stuff from the store that you get excited about things like…..whole wheat and beet pasta, and random cheese you’ve never heard of. yeah locavores!!
there’s a csa here?! yay! i’ll let my mother know. very cool. i’ve been wanting to join one for a few years now. too transient or i consider it at the wrong time of year.
this is the second month and so far so good. it’s about 50 bucks a week (which for me is kind of a lot, seeing as how you need to buy other stuff to supplement what you are getting), but you do get quite a variety of items.
Examples of shares can be found here
I hope your mom considers it! It’s definitely nice feeling like i’m contributing to my local farmers and stuff, you know? Plus it’s quite tasty!
