A working mom with a family of four, I signed up for a local CSA for many reasons.  As a business owner, I prefer to support local business and small farmers.  As a wife and mother, I want to provide healthy food for my family and to teach my children to eat well balanced meals that will keep them strong and healthy.

The weekly box of vegetables from our local farmer provides fresh, largely organic produce, that challenges me to prepare them (before the next box arrives!) and to learn about new produce I have not previously encountered.  I have discovered creative ways to use vegetables that create meals my family has enjoyed.

I have enjoyed the challenges presented by the CSA subscription, and would like to encourage others to support local farmers and enjoy eating healthier foods.

    Hi, I love the premise for your blog! What region of North America are you in?

      I’ve been living in Eastern Washington State for the past 16 years. We are a highly agricultural area, growing almost everything. This is the desert side of the state and nothing like the rainy, gray weather more typically associated with the Pacific Northwest.

    Ok cool! I know what you mean, I grew up in Olympia 🙂 Two very different climates all in one state!

      Where are you at now? I checked out your blog (granted from my phone, so I may have missed something). I saw Ontario mentioned. Is that Canada or Oregon?

        We moved from Atlanta to Kitchener, Ontario this past January, which was a fairly big contrast! Since I cannot work until I get residency, staying home with my 2 boys, cooking, and blogging have become my new occupation!

      I actually grew up in Aberdeen- 50 miles west of Olympia!
