So, I decided to join a CSA this year. In the past three years, I only grew a few vegetables at the community garden, but the theft from the gardens got so bad I was going to either get kicked out of the garden for being so bitchy, or get seriously hurt from attacking someone if I ever caught them stealing from the garden. Neither option was a good one, so when I heard about the CSA, Community Supported Argiculture, see this link http://www.localharvest.org/csa/ I decided to join. This one is with Connors Farm, see this link: http://www.connorsfarm.com/csa.htm Besides the fact that I figured I was saving someone's life (probably my own), I thought it would be nice to save some money. Well, I am going to blog about the CSA this year and how much I am saving. Each week is suppose to equal approximately $30 in produce. Today's haul from the farm included a lot of salad greens, so after using up almost a roll of bounty towels, I thought I would go out and buy a salad spinner. So, off to Bed, Bath and Beyond I go. No problem, there are many salad spinners to choose from. I happen to like the XOXO brand, so I got there. Cha-Ching!! $30, plus tax, spent on a salad spinner. I also had to buy some thermal grocery bags and a bag of ice on the way to the farm. It is Summer and I did not want all the salad greens to wilt, so the bags and ice, Cha-Ching, another $10!!! Are you keeping track??? I spent $40 this week towards the CSA. We will keep a running tally of monies spent as we go along.
