    Posted on October 9, 2008 by Allie

    With my trip and some other stuff that came up, I’ve completely lost count of what week of the CSA we’re in now.

  2. What’s In the Bag – Updates

    Posted on September 30, 2008 by Allie

    While we were away, my friend Michele took our CSA bags for us, and her enthusiasm for the veggies and trying new things was inspiring. After hearing about her roasted red pepper pizzas and bok choy stir fries, I resolved to get back in gear and make the most of my CSA bags and goods from my garden. Read more…

  4. What’s in the CSA Bag – Week 8

    There were leeks in our bag this week.  Not leaks.  Leeks.  And they kind of remind me of a certain Muppet.  Read more…

  5. What’s in the CSA Bag – Week 7

    Posted on August 12, 2008 by Allie


    This week’s bag weighed just over 16 pounds.  It was quite a haul.  It looked like less because it was light on lettuce, but goodness did we get food!  I am always amazed at what an incredible bargain our CSA is.

  6. What’s in the CSA Bag – Week 6

    Posted on August 6, 2008 by Allie


    Nothing too exciting going on in the newsletter this week.  In non-CSA news, I got really annoyed today because the peaches I bought at the farm market on Saturday have already gone bad (and have taken some other fruit down with them), but I guess this is one of the trials and tribulations associated with buying non-sprayed, non-GMO food.  I’d rather deal with rotten peaches than the alternative, I suppose.

  7. What’s in the CSA Bag – Week 5

    Posted on July 29, 2008 by Allie


    This week’s newsletter discussed some controversy that was stirred up by the mention of fish fertilizer in last week’s newsletter.  They got several e-mails from vegans who were distressed over the use of fish in the production of their vegetables. Read more…

  8. What’s in the CSA Bag – Week 4

    Posted on July 22, 2008 by Allie


    This week in the CSA newsletter, I learned that the added benefit of using an organic fish based fertilizer is that it keeps the pests away.  I’m guessing it probably keeps a lot of things away.  But it certainly doesn’t have an sort of negative effect on taste.  Our CSA bags are a great reminder of what food is supposed to taste like.

    This week in the CSA newsletter, I learned that our farmer’s grandson just had his first birthday, where the onion capital of the world is, and that this year, conditions are exactly right for growing lettuce, so we should brace ourselves for a summer of salads (and Ana’s lettuce soup).

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
