A Philosophical Moment

As Kim and I were enjoying our second meal courtesy of our CSA from Birdsong Farm, we had a little discussion about the benefits we have already noticed from getting fine produce this way……

1 It forces you to eat better because you don’t want to waste this delicious produce.

2 It challenges you to come up with new thoughts for meals that include the wonderful produce.

3 It has you trying things you have never had before…. ex. garlic shoots.

4 It has you recalling meals from your youth……ex. wanting to make tiny radish tea sandwiches because the radishes haven’t been that tasty since around 1962.

5 It has us talking with family and friends about what we are making, and that is always good.

Any other thoughts about why a CSA is a great thing?

6 Oh, and we are eating less meat already.

About Kim Galizio

I am involved in 2 blogs. For Lettuce Never Squash Our Love - I have a great desire to support our local farm community and joining a CSA was one way to do that. In the process we found it fascinating to explore what we can do with our CSA box and what others are doing as well. For Lean is Good - My first exposure to lean was in 1991 as TPM coordinator for 10 years at a rubber manufacturing facility. I love the blues both playing and listening being part of the Kent music scene for many years. I will plug the Kent Stage for Folk and Blues shows and go see 15-60-75 the numbers band whenever they are playing it will be worth it.

    One more great benefit: we get out of the house every Saturday morning to enjoy our community and pick up other treats at the market. This week’s impulse purchases were strawberry-rhubarb pie and fresh lemon-basil pasta from Ohio City Pasta!
