While folks up north are starting to enjoy apple cider and fall foliage, down here we're just getting started on the local growing season.
This year I joined a CSA called Veggies4U.com - I paid up front for a weekly box of vegetables starting today through next May. This is a great way not only to get delicious fresh produce, but to support local small farmers. I'm very excited to start cooking from the farm!
This week's haul:
Five ears of corn, three cucumbers, two yellow squash, a spaghetti squash, an eggplant, an avocado, and a bag of baby arugula. We'll see what good things I can do with these throughout the week.
