So, I used to blog about our various CSA's alot, just click on the CSA label if you want to read them all...I'm kind of a freak about them. I totally love seeing what's in them each week, it's like veg-head Christmas! So to fuel my passion I thought I'd share 1 weeks worth of CSA shares for our family.
On Mondays we pick up our Tanaka Farms CSA box. These are all straight from the farm (except sometimes they partner with another local organic farm to get more fruit in the box).
(see the little hand? That's E on her 2nd passion fruit from Farmer Steve)
Every other Monday we pick up a Farmer Steve box. Who's Farmer Steve? An organic farmer of course! He's from San Diego which still qualifies as local in my book. He drops off where the Tanaka boxes, so that makes for a very easy pick up.
On Thursdays we pick up our box at The Growing Experience. Every single thing in this box is grown on premises. It is an amazing little farm doing all kinds of amazing things. They just set up their first aquaponics. They will be showing it off at Their 3rd Annual Harvest Faire (Nov 10th 2-5pm). Anyways, my girls love coming here becasue they can go off and play in the Native Garden while I fart around and get my veggies all sorted. We always feel very welcome there!

Well, it's this...and it's yummy. :)
You can read about them here and you can come taste one here.
What CSAs are you a part of? I love seeing what's "local" in other parts of the country. Here in Southern CA we are blessed with a ridiculously kind growing season. :)
