It’s here! It’s here! Holy shit what am I going to do with all these greens Summer CSA season is here! The egg share was offered again this year. Rather than the occasional meat offering, this year we could choose a meat add-on for the entire season! The options were pork, chicken or lamb. We… Continue reading CSA Week 1: Greens, Eggs & Lamb

You guys. YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY. I don’t even know what I’ve been doing since my last CSA update. I’ve taken pictures but they’re still in my phone and my phone is in another state right now.
