We just had a really great weekend, and not so shockingly it pretty much revolved around food. For the most part any way. We joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) this year and although we've only had two pick-up's, we are really loving it. So the way this works is, you find a farm in your area that sells CSA farm shares and pay a flat rate at the beginning of the season (for us it's June-October) and each week you pick up a box of vegetables at your designated location. I love that each week is a mystery and we work around whatever we get. The farm we signed on with is Early Morning Farm and it is certified organic.
sunchokes for example. These gnarly little rooty gingerish looking things are pretty darned delish. We had them roasted last week (with other root vegetables) and tonight we had them sauteed and tossed with spinach. Yum.
