The blog has a new mascot.

I think he just saw some chard.



What a weekend! A baby shower, family visiting and the super bowl. Lots of pics on the way!

I’ve had a few questions about our new service, Arganica.

It’s actually not a CSA, in that we do not buy a share of a farms output. We do not pay a lump sum for a delivery every week or take on any risk. Rather, we pay forĀ  crates (or individual products) when we want them.

It’s really a grocery delivery service that sources its products mostly from local farms, but also from other well vetted sources. Each source is listed on the order form, so they can be checked out.

Thus, the kiwi!

Since we may be moving this summer, we could not do a traditional CSA, which was a bummer for us. But, this is the next best thing and I really like it so far.

Keep the questions coming!


A big ole crate arrived at my door at 11:30pm last night.

And of course, I had to play with it and take pictures, so I’m a little sleepy today!

I’m really liking Arganica so far. The veggies look great and there was lots of variety in the produce box. I really like that they include fruit (kiwi!).

This is all the fruit, veggies and bread. We also go some milk and applesauce. I drank a glass of milk…and DANG. Tasty.

And yes, there was CHARD in the damn box. I asked C. to hold it up so I could take a picture of it. You know, to illustrate my complaints on this here blog about the TWO bunches of chard.

But as you can see…he has very different feelings than I about the leafy green.

Here we go!

Hi again.

Where have I been?

Veggie-less in the barren icy land of winter.

(Really, it was a self-imposed cookie-filled holiday land of pastries).

But, regardless.

I’m back. With veggies.

Thanks to a Living Social deal, we have signed up with a farm club called Arganica. Our first delivery is this evening.

We are not doing the Potomac CSA again because we don’t want to commit to a months long program. Our future is too uncertain as C. is finishing school this semester.

Oh, I finished grad school, too. Yeah, its pretty great.

Check back tomorrow for some pics of veggie goodness.

The Story

I'm skeptical of vegetables and joined a CSA to see if I can make friends with them. This blog exists so that I can hold myself accountable to eating what I paid for and document what I can do with lots of local produce!
