: wanna see whats in our csa box? : week 5 : and fun pictures of the farm! :

its almost monday!
i hope you had a great weekend.

i feel like we have spent so much of the weekend outside ; right now, i am laying on the floor watching law and order on netflix and getting my goals in order for this week!

i missed our csa box recap last week since we were in kansas city, but i am back today with our haul from last friday!

in this weeks box : 
we got : carrots, a HUGE head of garlic, swiss chard, lots of broccoli, spearmint, savory, super-huge cucumbers, baby tomatoes and three cute, read tomatoes.

also yesterday,  our co-op partnered with 11 local farms to host an 'open-house' of sorts. there were buffalo, dairy, organic veggie and beef farms. all over minnesota.

we wanted to head to 5 of them, but only got to three.

our fave?
gardens of eagan. they are an organic 100-acre farm right in the city! so cool.
for a $1, you went into the field, picked an ear of corn, and then they boiled it for you!
after that, we loaded onto a wagon and took an hour-long tractor ride around the farm.

we had so much fun!
it was super hot and we took a bunch of photos :

 this is alllllll garlic!

 my hair kinda looks purple..

we learned so much [more!] about organic farming ; it really made us proud of the food we put into our bodies!
