Community Supported Agriculture: Our First Delivery

This year, my lovely wife and I joined a local CSA – the fancy acronym for community supported agriculture. Joining a CSA is one of the ways we’ve considered going green while saving green and this was the first year we’ve done it. We went with One Straw Farm, a CSA located in Maryland with a drop point just a few miles from our house. Our goal in doing this is to eat better, both in the quality/diversity of our food and in lowering the impact we have on our environment, and learn how to cook more. It’s a bonus that we can support a local business.

Today, I picked up our first delivery which consisted of:

  • One pint of strawberries
  • One bunch of rainbow chard
  • One bunch of beets
  • One bunch of Swiss chard
  • One bunch of garlic sprouts
  • One bunch of broccoli
  • One bunch of kale
  • One head of lettuce
