How To: CSA Veggie Box

Wonder what to do with a weekly CSA veggie box? Take a peek inside our Wednesday box (my parents get a box twice a week in Oregon) and see the creations assembled and imagined by my wonderful Mama!

 

Fresh, crisp, local, organic veggies. My dream come true.

How awesome is the name of our Wednesday CSA, Turnip the Beet??? (I want a t-shirt! or to start my own band with that name!)

 

Can we also talk about how convenient and easy it is? We simply place the empty box outside in the morning, and it is delivered and placed in the box by afternoon.

I am incredibly #blessed as during the summer months, I eat 100% local, 100% organic, 100% homemade, 100% healthy creations from my mother. I just wish I had the time / energy / creativity that my mother possesses …. until then, Fred’s will do.
