7 things you might find interesting
1. I have a 6 year old boy and 4 year old twin boys. We are constantly asked if they are triplets.
2. I've made several cross country trips across America and yet have never spent more than a few hours in every state we traveled through. My father was a person who tried to bet his travel record each and every time we went on vacation.
3. I love to read. Our home could seriously be made into a library.
4. I love to grow a vegetable garden more than I like to have a flower garden.
5. I hate to drive. It's just not a thing I desire to do.
6. We have two dogs and three cats. We love animals in our house. I also love attracting backyard birds to our yard and love learning about the birds we bring in.
7. I homeschooled my oldest last year. Plans are to do it again this year but as always plans are subject to change.

Now for my CSA pickup. If you don't know what a CSA is it stand for community supported agriculture. You pay a farmer in late winter or early spring a dollar amount, for Borski it was $199, and then you get anywhere from 15 to 20 weeks of produce straight from the farm in summer and fall. Borski grows organically which I find to be important and he's local which is another huge factor for me.
We picked up:
about 1lb of assorted salad greens
about 2lbs of peas
about 3lbs of bing cherries
one huge head of garlic
one nice sized thyme starter for the garden
