My husband is one of those people who sees the new year as just the start of another month, with nothing particularly remarkable about it. He thinks new years resolutions are silly and that people should set goals whenever they think of one.
I, on the other hand, get really jazzed about the new year. I’m really excited about my word of the year (which is good because it took me forever to choose it) and am ready to turn the page on a new year – literally and metaphorically.
I have no complaints about the fact that the other thing I had to do yesterday was pick up my CSA share – what a great way to start 2018. I also dropped off my payment for our 2018 share. Once again, we’ll be participating in the “full” season share, which will provide us vegetables from June to March. For the first time, we’re upgrading to a medium share year round instead of medium for the summer and small for the winter. That means next year’s winter CSA pickups will have twice as many items as this year’s, making for some interesting menu planning. Also, Mighty Food is offering egg and fruit shares for the first time as well. We’ll be participating in the fruit share.
All that to say, if you’re in my neck of the woods and a CSA sounds interesting to you, Mighty Food Farm is currently taking sign-ups!
