CSA and napkins
I am really excited about being part of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)! We were able to sign up with Earthen Harvest for the 2010 season. We will get a box of organic vegetables and fruits delivered to our house each week from May until November! Isn't that awesome? I am still such a novice gardener and we buy so much of our produce from the grocery store each year. This is a great way to support local farming too. I love that we can get new things that I usually wouldn't buy. This will challenge me to try new recipes. Dan said the challenge will be to not compost everything. This morning Simon and I were looking through the box. He asked to try some of them. He tried the chives, scallions, and the radish! Great kid. I bet he won't want to eat them when I make a meal out of it!
I decided to continue down my crunchy granola path... I made more cloth napkins. Bright and fun yellow ones. I got this fabric on sale in March for $3 a yard! It's Heather Bailey, no less!
I bought melamine plates, bowls, and cups too. I am tired of having a BBQ and buying paper and plastic that you end up throwing away! This was we have reusable plates, that won't break as easily, and washable napkins. I think it will ease my guilt about throwing things away for no reason. Yes, I am a granola girl.
Since my older two rarely hold still when the camera comes out I took the liberty of taking a picture of their school pictures this year. See, they are adorable (says the biased mother).
