CSA Monday

Monday afternoons are exciting- we get our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box. Although we know what we’ve ordered, it’s still fun to open up the box and actually see the variety of produce- there’s usually a plum, peach or apple for Rylee to bite into. He loves our CSA box and is always eager to dive in and eat whatever’s there. Sometimes we get produce that he isn’t currently tolerating, but for the most part, we’re able to get a good variety for him. Last night, we got peaches, plums and apricots, as well as kale (kale chips, yum!), radishes and leeks, and much more! Living in Kodiak, Alaska, we don’t have the opportunity to go to weekly farmer’s markets, so this is as close as we get. Although I would love to be able to walk through a farmer’s market on a regular basis, it’s not a reality (but we do get to catch fresh fish when we want to, so it evens out!). Signing up for a CSA box is good for a variety of reasons- the produce is organic, it’s delivered fresh, it supports sustainable growing practices and more! Our CSA box comes from Full Circle Farm in Washington state; if you’re not already signed up for CSA deliveries, I encourage you to look into it so you can dive into fresh, organic produce once a week or less, you get to choose how often. It’s good for you and the environment!
