  1. that's a pretty awesome arrangement. I am certain that Lake will settle in to his "job" ;) eventually. I'd love to hear more about your share, so keep the updates coming. I have been on the verge of buying a share for a few years now, but haven't because the pickups are all so far away. I'll keep looking!

  2. What a lovely CSA you have. I think this generation is redefining work as "doing something we're passionate about". Love all the photos of your happy family working on a CSA. Look forward to many more farming photos this summer.

  3. yay! i love our csa so much, we are in year 3, about to begin any day now (but our farm had a 2 week delay given our cold rainy spring here in the pnw). what a great deal for you, to do it as a work share. that is awesome! our farm prints a one page newsletter each week, with a blurb about what's happening on the farm, a "know your farmer" section where they introduce one person from the farm, and a list of what's in this week's share, which i have kept in a binder for the two years, for the same reason you are saying- it's SO cool to see how the food changes through the season. through the csa i learned about garlic scapes, celeriac, parsley root, and other oddball veggies. i just love feeling like i'm helping the farm deliver exactly what it has in abundance at any given time, rather than picking the items they have less of. helps in reducing what goes to waste, or i like to think so anyway. :)

  4. That looks like such fun! I would love to be apart of something like this!

  5. so cool! what a great activity to add to your homeschooling curriculum. i love that the work doesn't feel like work – that's the best kind!

    I loved our CSA last year and really miss it this year. Not just the great food but the connection to the farmers themselves. Looks like you are really involved and that can only be good for your kids, but I really empathise with the challenges of the 2 year boy! It all looks so yummy and what wonderful fun to be hanging out on the farm every week!

  7. Thank you for the tour around a CSA. I have never been to one before and it is an idea we have been bouncing around to do one our place. As my children grow and leave home, my husband's work out of town, this place is becoming very hard to keep up. Still a lot to think about, but now I know more.
    PS-Day 16 of the cleanse and I really want a huge bowl of ice cream. DId you have any cravings?

  8. We LOVE LOVE LOVE our CSA and can't imagine a summer without one. I also take photos every week – for the past few years – to document and remember and compare. So interesting to see in retrospect, knowing weather and seasonal changes. How awesome that your work share lets you take the kids along. That makes it manageable and good for the kids too. Love that! Our CSA starts at the end of June – can't wait!

  9. Thank you for the tour! Very nice

  10. Sounds like you are embracing the change beautifully. And what a charming place your community farm is!

    I feel the same way about exposing my children to farms and markets and gardens – showing them where their food comes from and allowing them to develop a sense of gratitude for the land and all it provides.

  11. I love this time of year–going to Farmer's Markets and just seeing all the incredible produce. It's looks like you had a fun day too. XOXO

  12. Your farm share looks amazing! And what a wonderful opportunity for the kiddos!
