why I jumped out of bed at 6am

Today I got my first shipment from a local CSA! I got inspired by K who is getting one from her BIL's farm. I'm getting it every other week (delivered on Monday) and I was surprised how big the box was!



It's got a nice mix of fruits and veggies. I got 4 apples, 5 oranges and a MANGO! The mango is a little random and I had to double check my list to make sure I wasn't going crazy...Veggie wise I got, lettuce, carrots, radish, mushrooms, tomatoes, purple tomatoes, spring onions and broccoli.


Notice that I subbed in the tomatoes? I originally had strawberries and since I'm not a huge strawberries fan, I'm glad they allowed me to change it. They also give a couple recipe suggestions which I appreciate!


  1. omg so excited for you...and for me. can't wait to share experiences and recipes :)

  2. everything looks great! is it just a local thing? I would love to do something like this for myself. Please post the recipes you try because I love trying new recipes!!

  3. YUM! Looks like you got some stuff that is easy to incorporate! The one time I tried a CSA I got beets, daikon and swiss chard and was puzzled for days :o) Can't wait to see what you make!

  4. How did you order this? I want to as well...I'm growing most of my vegetables but there are certain ones I just can't : )
