Join a CSA

I came home to spring in my garden. Join a CSA

The daffodils are blooming, the weeping willows are full of tender, yellow green leaves, the grass is green and the weeds are taking over. Each spring I think about all the vegetables I might grow. By the middle of June I wonder what I was thinking.  Of course I will plant carrots and perhaps potatoes.

The parsley and rhubarb have reappeared in my garden but the undeniable truth is FARMERS DO IT BETTER. They work harder, they weed every day, not just when they feel like meditating, they work hard.

This spring I have joined the Clay Hill Collective CSA in Harland, Vermont.  The Clay Hill Collective is a collective of six growers and producers of quality food less than four miles from my kitchen.  In early spring, I’ve been told that I can expect lettuce, spicy greens, spinach, kale, herbs and lots more. I will be doing a CSA post each week to share what came in my bag and a recipe or two of what I made.

Eating Local is possible without having a green thumb.  I hope you will be inspired to find and support a farmer or group of farmers who live near you. Food is tastier to me when I know who grew it.

Contact me if you live nearby and would like to be a part of the Clay Hill CSA. If you are part of a CSA, a veg box scheme, or a farmers’ market regular, I’d love to hear what’s in your bag and what you are making with it.

My CSA starts on Sunday!
