So a few months ago D and I decided to support our local organic farming community and become members of the CSA. I have long awaited our first box of locally grown veggies, flowers and fruits from Helsing Junction Farm! This afternoon after her swimming lesson E and I hopped in the car and headed to our designated pick-up site. After a couple wrong turns I finally located a shed off the side of the road, holding our box of fresh produce! Hooray! I eagerly unpacked our plunder at home finding 5 pints of strawberries (might have to do Tania's recipe), 1 bunch of red chard, a handful of arugula, 5 or so radishes, and a head of lettuce! Along with my box they offer a newsletter containing recipes, and updates on the crops, so, so, so exciting for me! Another plus is that my pick-up site sells fresh eggs too, amazing! We will be getting fresh produce every week, all summer long and into October. You make me sing, Helsing!

PS Anyone have a good recipe for radishes?
