CSA Week 1

This year we signed up for a share in a Community Supported Agriculture program ("CSA"). The CSA is with One Straw Farm, the largest organic vegetable farm in Maryland. The CSA provides weekly produce (whatever is ripe!) from June through November. Each week you get 8 items that you pick up at a nearby site and you'll have more than enough produce to last you the week. We had our first pick up this week and got a lot of stuff! Below is the list:

1 bunch romaine
1 bunch red leaf lettuce
1 bunch green leaf lettuce
1 bunch kale
1 bunch rainbow chard
1 bunch red chard
1 bunch arugula
1 pint strawberries

Brand spanking new desk!

We're on our way to getting the 3rd floor office decorated and cleaned up. Step one, get a new work space that's just for work. I got a new desk that's designated for my workspace and a new chair. Finally no more card table chair to sit on all day! We got both pieces at Target for a pretty good deal. Another motivation for the new desk was to make room for our new home computer. That's step two, get a home computer we can use for photos and music as well as another tv for the house and for our
guests. Step three is to find a couch with a pull out bed so this can be the office, a den and a guest room all in one! Step four is putting on the final touches including new window treatments and a nice paint color, along with a new ceiling fan. Quite a list still to go! Now all I need to do is figure out how to work that new iMac of ours...should be fun!
