Next weekend is the next to the last visit to our CSA farm for organic produce. This is our second year supporting a CSA farm in the this area. I wanted to do it in Walla Walla because one of my son's classmates and her husband started one but I wasn't sure we would be able to use all the produce. Last spring, when I started the 30 Juice Challenge, I knew it would be worth our investment. We joined as half-share members picking up produce every other week rather than every Saturday. It's a nice Saturday morning outing to beautiful farmland, something I miss seeing as I looked down my street to the wheat fields on the rolling hills surrounding Walla Walla.
This year our farmer and her helper who checks us in are getting a little gift in appreciation for a great season and the beautiful Holy Basil plant I now have on my patio. Two aprons are ready to be gifted on Saturday. The perfect fabric just happened to be hiding in my stash.
