This month’s Farm Fresh delivery to our door from Capay Organic. (Dog not included.)
Our monthly Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) delivery from Capay Organic’s Farm Fresh to You produce arrived on Friday. We initially signed up for the service with a short-term commitment in mind; bridge the deficit that our back yard farming efforts do not provide us so that our nutritional needs could be better met. Shopping at local grocery store chains for vegetables trucked from the Central Valley is one thing but to buy produce from Canada or Mexico? I prefer not to be a part of that economy because it isn’t necessary for us to do so. We have access to fertile land in a garden I call Eden, otherwise known as California. What might our world be like if more people were granted access to land to grow their own food and help sustain their communities?

Please support your local farmers. Plant seeds of your own. The rewards are worth the effort.
We opted to grill asparagus for tonight’s side dish so that this head of garden fresh Romanesco Broccoli will have one more day to grow genetically un-modified, and pesticide free.
Trying to convey to you with words what only functioning taste buds can convey is futile.
Dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m. PST.
