When I began getting a local CSA farm share two years ago, my life in the kitchen changed dramatically. I went from being someone who got overwhelmed with meal planning and kept making the same meals over and over to someone who was excited to find ways to prepare meals with all these crazy new vegetables. I had never eaten kale or shallots before, and I was happy to make their acquaintance. I love my farm share for several reasons, including the great taste of freshly picked vegetables, the health benefits of eating organic local produce, the environmental value of buying local, and the affordability of a farm share. But the main reason I love it is that I don’t have to decide what produce to buy each week. My farmer does it for me. If you haven’t gotten around to getting a farm share yet, please check out Local Harvest to see if there is a farm near you. You won’t regret it.
This week was the last pick-up of my winter share, which comes once or twice a month from late fall through early spring. All the food in this meal came from my farm share except the organic chicken sausage.
