WTF Farmbox A.K.A. Beets Taste Like Dirt

WTF Farmbox A.K.A. Beets Taste Like Dirt

It was bound to happen. Today’s farm box was filled with beets and potatoes, two of the only three vegetables I think are gross. It’s really too bad that I hate beets, because they (like my third hated vegetable, eggplant) are so pretty. You’d think that something that nice looking would taste good. But no. […]

One of my joint New Year’s Resolutions that I made with Mr. Foxypants is to only eat meat two days a week. The other five days we are vegetarians.

CSA: My New Favorite Subscription Isn’t A Magazine

My Community Supported Agriculture subscription is my new favorite thing. Even though we’re still eating our way through last week’s farm box, I couldn’t pass up this week’s. It’s like having my birthday every Thursday afternoon. And weirdly thrilling. This week’s farm box includes two Pink Lady apples (that I’ve already eaten), four sweet potatoes, […]

Community Sponsored Agriculture For Dummies (Yes, That’s Me).

Ugh. I’ve reached a new height of stupidity. My local grade school has a weekly CSA farm box program that I’ve been wanting to join for the past two years. I mean what could be better? I get a box of organic produce, support local farmers, and support my local public school. There is no […]
