Winter Veggie CSA begins!

athens hills csa week 1 Here's our first week of the Athens Hills Winter CSA (community support agriculture).  For those not familiar, CSAs are arrangements where consumers buy a share of a farmer's weekly harvest.  We LOVE CSAs because we get fresh local vegetables every week, the variety inspires interesting cooking, and we support a local farmer. We are splitting this winter CSA with friend Lissi.

This week's share: lettuce mix, spinach, sunflower sprouts, sweet potatoes, garlic, and mushrooms.

meyer lemon on our potted lemon tree

This is our "local" citrus, a meyer lemon, growing in our potted lemon tree.  It is almost ready for picking but still a little green on the bottom.  This fun tree has been with us for 4 years and has given us the same amount of lemons.  Not a great harvest ratio, but the blossoms smell lovely and it always surprises people that we have a lemon tree growing in the house.  :)
