A year or so ago, a friend introduced me to the concept of CSA's. They don't all operate exactly the same, but basically, you invest in a "share" of the farm and receive a basket of produce each week. Or, in the case of our CSA, my choice of produce, dairy products, or flowers. But back to last year--I tried in vain to find one in my area, but then decided that I didn't need one because we were going to grow our fabulous garden.
If you've been reading for a while, you might remember that last year's garden didn't pan out quite as expected. We grew some delicious produce, but not enough to eliminate the need to buy produce at the grocery store, or to can a bunch as I had intended.
Then a friend told me about a local CSA that she participated in last season. Hooray! So, I looked into it and liked what I found. And today, I became an Official Member of our CSA! And it was my Joyful Moment! I can't wait until April when the bounty of goodness begins!
Wishing you all bountiful Joyful Moments!
