This picture shows my box of local, organic fruits and vegetables that I get delivered right to my house. Check your local area for CSA options. You may have to do a little digging, but they are out there! You can go to www.localharvest.org to get started.
It is really fun to get my box every week because it is always different. I love opening it up and thinking about what I am going to cook up with it all. I can feel good about the food I am eating and that I am contributing to sustainable agriculture by buying from my local farms.
