Roots and Shoots Farm - 3rd week of CSA Food
Tonight was our pickup night again for the Roots and Shoots Farm's CSA food. This was their week #3. We participate with a half share every other week so this was just our second food offering. The colours alone get me. We have an exciting week ahead of trying new things. I welcome any and all suggestions on what to do with the bounty.
If you want to understand more about CSA's, the Ottawa Citizen did an article in today's paper.
