Fall Preparations

By becoming a member of a CSA (community supported agriculture) for the past four years I have learned to eat seasonally.  It took a while to get used to and as we enter the Fall season I have to switch my fruits and vegetables as well as my clothes.  There is always a tinge of sadness as peaches, tomatoes, corn, and plums take a back seat to apples, squash


Perfect Food

I realized that some food chains only put out “perfect” unblemished food in their stores.

The food that I receive from my CSA includes dirt covered tomatoes and potatoes, gritty lettuce and a few corn worms here and there.  All these vegetables require washing and re-washing. 

They are not perfect by any means but there is something comfort in knowing that my food is not perfect as stores would like us to think.
