Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Community Shared Agriculture Rules!

I look forward to Wednesdays, not because I can't wait to find out what amazing projects my fellow upcyclers will be linking to on Upcycled Awesome this week (Although that is fun!), but I find out what is in my weekly CSA.

If you don't know what a CSA is here are the basics: CSA stands for Community Shared Agriculture, which  means that you are buying a share of a farm (or collective of farms) and you get a portion of what they produce every week. it is a great opportunity to follow the 100 mile rule when it comes to your food. 

I love the fact that my family eats fresh and we know where our produce comes from. The kids love picking out the vegetables themselves. They even eat them sometimes (LOL). They think it is so cool to meet the farmers and learn about how plants grow. Truly a highlight of our week.

So what does going to a CSA look like? A little bit of heaven, check it out.



Once you pay for your weekly share you get to go through the line and pick out your designated fruits and veggies for the week. Our CSA has two sizes: family and single.


The produce is amazingly fresh. Check out these strawberries. My mouth is watering just looking at them.

Yummy chamomile for some tasty tea once we dry it.


C2 checks out the Bok Choy. He loves a good stir fry with Bok Choy, Tofu, and mom's homemade peanut sauce.

The Community Ag is such a great idea. I need to look into one in my area for next year. I usually go to the local farmer's market, but I'd love to grow vegetables with others!

I am a big CSA fan - my husband and I are members of our local CSA, but it's pretty small. Yours looks amazing though! My favorite part about CSAs is figuring out what to do with vegetables we wouldn't normally buy in the store. Both my husband and I have some new favorites now!

I love CSAs! I joined city fresh last year and was so looking forward to being in it again this year. But I couldn't get a share. Not sure if they're doing it differently this year, but I emailed about 5 times trying to get a share and never heard back. So, we gave up. Did they change it?

I didn't think they were doing anything different. We mailed in our form with a payment and just showed up on the first day. I always thought that once you got in you were in year after year? That stinks. Maybe you can get in now? My cousin started around this time last year (but it was the Kamm's corner location).
