Monthly CSA Updates

It’s been more than a month since I joined the CSA and has been very pleased with my weekly produce that I picked out.  Most of the time is the same type of veggies that I eat all the time but I tried to be a little bit adventurous from time to time to pick a vegetables that I’m don’t usually cook at home such as patty pan squash, lemon cucumbers and swiss chard.

I enjoyed all the seasonal produce that are available weekly at the farm stand where I picked up my small share.  They are fresh, delicious and worth the extra money that I paid for instead of sifting through the produce isle in the store.

One surprised thing was that my daughter even know that each week I will bring home the “goodies bag”. As soon she sees the red bag I brought home, she immediately says “Mama…strawberries !” and start digging through the bag.  I enjoyed letting her discover all the produce and using it as a tool to teach her the fruits and vegetables that are healthy for her.
