living locally // CSA

Seriously, joining our local CSA, Graber Farms, was the best decision of the summer!


I mean look at this...


That's just one weeks worth!  And the best part, it was only $20!

That's...

3 ears of corn
3 cucumbers
3 zucchini
3 summer squash
6 bell peppers
2 onions
2 eggplants
1 watermelon
8 tomatoes
1 pint of green beans
a handful of cherry tomatoes



And the best part, it's all organic.  Oh did I mention, it was only $20!

In May we decided to sign up for the whole summer, 20 weeks.  From June to October we pick up a lovely box filled to the brim with produce just like this at the farmers' market.  Not only have we loved the fresh produce, but it's actually helped us store up a lot of great food for winter and save loads of cash at the grocery.


There is no way we could buy this amount of produce for just $20 each week!  And our grocery bill has gone way down as we only purchase staples like bread and milk.  This along with what produce we get in our little garden each week is more than enough for the two of us!
