Do You Know What This Is a Picture Of? Just a Farm.

Why_local_1I have a  favorite place to get my organic fruits and vegetables these days.  It's a new CSA called Irv & Shelly's Fresh Picks and they actually deliver.  The deal is simple--Basically, every week, they drop off (yep, they deliver to your house for $3.50!) a big box of organic produce at my door step in a ice packed container.  Not only do they deliver fruit, veggies, and eggs...they also have a good selection of dairy, meat and fish.  The prices is $25 for a single portion and each container usually contains 9-11 different varieties of locally grown, totally organic yummy things to eat.  The past few weeks, I have seen giant handfuls of fresh basil, dill and mint, baby potatoes, juicy heirloom tomatoes, piles of lettuce, squash, melons, fuzzy peaches, baby bok choy, kale, carrots, onions, crazy ripe blueberries, strawberries and raspberries, as well as wild watercress.  I love getting my box every Thursday and also like the fact that they include a print out with storage and recipe tips.  You can do all your ordering online and I cannot stress this enough, EVERYTHING they have tastes the way food is supposed to taste.  You will never go back to the rock hard ball Jewel calls a tomato once you 've tasted their heirlooms. It's enough good stuff to make me wanna chuck it all and head back to the farm (which, again, is where real food comes from).
