I get my CSA at the Hillcrest Farmer's Market every other Sunday from JR Organics. Every week on Monday or Tuesday I get an email telling me the contents of this weeks box. A few weeks ago a second email was also sent telling us about a chance to visit the farm. I jumped at the opportunity, and on June 12th I visited JR Organics. It was a wonderful experience! We got to see how the seeds are started & transplanted, how they rotate crops, keep pests at bay, compost, harvest and package the vegetables and fruits I simply pick up from them. They also provided us with a delicious lunch! There were many offerings for everyone including vegans! It is so rare to get to eat food that I don't have to prepare or ask a million questions about that this was such an added treat. And as an added bonus, we got to eat strawberries that we picked ourselves.
Rice & veggies, roasted veggies, pico de gallo, guacamole, cucumber salad, tortilla chips and a salad with nopales. Everything except the chips was made that morning by the women who work/live on the farm.
Lentil Soup. Yum!
And I think I will throw in some lingering random CSA pictures.
Precious (the black one) loves greens.
I hope I haven't spoiled you with three postings in a row. That was most all of the pictures I had to share and since the cinnamon rolls I made this weekend failed, I am afraid I might not be back for a bit....we'll see.
