A tightly sealed package filled with wonderful goodies… euphoric aromas seeping from the kitchen…
No, it’s not Christmas. It’s your CSA box arriving weekly with freshly harvested local bounty!! But with spring’s sweet treats like green peas and asparagus, it sure does seem like Christmas in March.
Community Supported Agriculture is one of the best ways you can inspire your tot-chef to chow down on mysterious vegetables and juicy fruit. And is there a better opportunity to discuss where food comes from (Albertson’s? the can?) than when your delivery arrives straight from the local farm? Anticipation and wonder will radiate from your kids as they peel open the box to see what will be on the menu this week. And with truly the tastiest produce at their finger-tips, they’ll be clamoring to help you cook up new recipes for carrots and beans.
If you live in the Los Angeles or San Diego area, sign up for a CSA box from J.R. Organics. The Escondido based family farm is committed to providing its members with the freshest, most nutritious vegetables around. Try them out by picking up a few veggies from their stand at many local Farmers’ Markets.
Coming soon… kid-friendly recipes inspired by the weekly harvest.
