We got a CSA this year. If you're not familiar with it, a CSA stands for Community Share Agriculture. There are different kinds, but the most common is for people to get some of what is grown on the farm.
I didn't like that kind because I don't like the idea of getting stuff I've never heard of and wasting money because we're not going to eat it, so I decided to go with a CSA where I choose the veggies. More or less, we're paying someone to garden for us. I get the veggies without having to do any of the work!! :)
So far, we've enjoyed a ton of mixed lettuce, some broccoli, and carrots. We'll be getting food all the way through the fall, so I look forward to lots of yummyness!
So why do you need a CSA if you have kids?? Caleb absolutely LOVES picking the vegetables in our garden and has learned so much about where our food comes from. As a result, he is choosing to eat many more vegetables too--all the while proclaiming, "We grew this in our garden!" I've been amazed to see him choosing carrots for a snack. He swears they taste different when they're fresh. I have to agree!
If you've got a picky eater on your hands, consider joining a CSA--especially one where you choose what you want to grow!
