Winter Veggie CSA begins!
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.
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. :)
