So I started buying more produce at my grocery store. But I found myself buying the same things every week, and not enough to last the week. I also started reading about how long produce from grocery stores takes to get from the field to my store. It's a long time.
A friend of mine told me about a local farm that offered a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) option for produce, meat, and eggs. After crunching the numbers, we decided to take the plunge and ordered a medium share of produce and a monthly meat variety.

This week I am planning to make zucchini bites, which are kind of like tater tots but with zucchini, and probably a zucchin bread too. I haven't decided how I will cook the green beans yet, and I am going to make sweet potato chips. I'm hoping that I can convince the kids to eat veggie snacks instead of their usual junk. Here's hoping!
