    August 2017 Favorites

    1) Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Joining a CSA has been a long term goal of mine since I first learned about them about four years ago. A CSA allows you to pay a discounted price for produce in advance to a farmer. This gives the farmer the money in advance to pay for the price of raising crops. You do share the risk of crop failure with the farmer. It took me awhile to find a CSA in my local area. In July I joined my first CSA for $10/week (paying $40 at the beginning of the month) and received a tote of fruits and vegetables from their farm. It…

I hate the word busy.¬†Everyone is so busy these days. I use to strive to stay busy, thinking it was a sign I was doing everything right. Now the word just makes me roll my eyes. It seems like we think we need to be busy. Especially my generation. Or maybe the world just wants us to think we have to be busy. Idk. It’s funny how much weight the word busy can hold. It can be an insult,…
