CSA Workshare

Eric and I are members of a CSA farm. CSA= Community Supported Agriculture. Members will pay a one time fee for a weekly box of produce (usually for about 20 weeks).  We are participating in a work share.  We donate a certain amount hours per season and in return we receive a free box of produce every week.

Benefits of a work share include saving money, learning new things, meeting new people, and eating new foods.  Plus the added bonus is that the farm is next door to my parents house, so we can visit them too.  We also have a few things planted at my parents house that we can upkeep after working on the farm.

This week we received:
One head of lettuce
Arugula, with flowers
Bunch of Kale
Mizuna (Japanese salad green)
Baby Pac Choi
Tomato plant
