I decided to try out a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program this summer. I first heard about CSAs (which seem to be pretty popular in the area) through Pike Place Market, but the boxes they offered were for a family of four, which is way too much food for me. Then I discovered Full Circle Farm, which offers small-sized boxes for two people, and they don't require an entire summer subscription: you can pay by the box, and it's okay to not receive a box if you'll be on vacation, etc.

So far, things have gone pretty well. It's a challenge to finish that many fruits/veggies each week, but it's healthy. :) The other interesting thing is that we get items that we wouldn't normally buy in the grocery store, like eggplant and white turnips (though we're allowed to swap a few items if there's something we don't like). So we've tried out some new receipes, like an eggplant, zucchini, and tomato casserole and white turnips au gratin. As for the fruit, Justin eats most of it, but I eat almost all of the berries. Strawberries came at the beginning, cherries started appearing recently, and this week was the first week of raspberries. Yum!
