Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

CSA - Join Now!

CSA - Community Supported Agriculture - is a tool to help you buy seasonal, local food directly from the farmer(s) that grow it.  For a fee, you purchase a share of the harvest, delivered to a centralized pick up location or picked up directly at the farm (depending on the organizer).  They can be weekly or biweekly and the variety depends on growing season and success of a crop.  However, there is not a better way to eat fresh foods locally.  A full share is generally recommended for Two adults and two children OR Two vegetarians.  A half share is recommended for two adults.  There are CSA's for fruits, vegetables and/or meats.  Some will add eggs.  So eat healthy, eat locally, save money and sign up NOW.   

Go to Local Harvest ( to find a farm near you. 

You may even learn new things.  For example - Eggs come in white, brown and - of all things - GREEN.  Dr. Seuss was right - you can eat green eggs and ham.  Thank you Katie at Cool Beans CSA for helping me learn about eggs.  Some CSA's blog, some offer recipes to help you use the food provided, so don't be afraid to try it.
