The biggest hesitation people seem to have with CSAs is not knowing what produce they'll be receiving and fear that they won't have the time to use it all and that the food (and money) will go to waste. Of course those very aspects are part of what make CSAs such a great idea. In addition to supporting local/organic agriculture, you can learn about new ingredients that you may not have eaten or with before and you have extra incentive to prepare and eat more veggies every week! Win-win. If you can make it work.
So here is my new challenge for this week: my CSA box included pears, spring mix, kale, iceberg lettuce, an artichoke, potatoes, celery, and onions.
Come back next week to see how I used them and if anything went to waste!
