The CSA Box


I have come to the conclusion that my diet occasionally suffers from being beholden to the grocery store produce aisle. All grocery stores are not created equal, of course. Here in Southern California, most stores have at least some decent-looking organic produce. Then there are the fancy boutique style grocery stores with their flattering lighting and appealing packaging, but I can’t really cough up the cash to shop there regularly. True, there is the farmer’s market, but it usually happens on Sunday afternoons, after I have already procured groceries and planned my week. My preferred strategy is usually to find whatever produce looks great first, and then fill in the gaps around it at the grocery store.

I have long known about CSAs, but the logistics of getting done at the office and arriving at a pick-up location by 5 PM on a weekday to pick up my weekly box or basket were not very realistic. I loved the idea of supporting local farmers, but I didn't want to be limited to whatever arrived in the box, feeling guilty if I didn't use up 3 pounds of zucchini that week when what I really wanted to make was mushroom pizza.

Then my friend told me about this CSA, all local and organic produce delivered (delivered!) right to my door every week in the wee hours of Thursday morning. This is just perfect, as I can stash the goodies in my refrigerator before leaving for work Thursday mornings and I have 1-2 days to figure out what I'd like to cook and what else I need to shop for before I head to the grocery store on the weekend. Plus, they let you log on and customize your box so that you can switch out items to your heart's content.

I signed up for the box that feeds "2-4 people" and am finishing it nicely in about 7 days. (Oink, oink.)
