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.
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!
