Uggg! I feel like the last kid to get new shoes, you know? I live on a working form, surrounded by other farms and yet, I have to buy produce that is well on its way to rotten at the local store or drive 50 miles round trip to the mega mart to get good produce. I have only lived here for about a year and a half but nobody told me about CSA's. I read about them on the Scottish Cow's blog. I contacted a local farm that has a CSA but they are all filled up for this season. Eh, there is always next year.

Believe it or not, I had a farmer's market directly across from my apartment complex in Detroit. There were a few things to like about Detroit.

I hear that if I get to the local farmer's market early, I can get some good produce. That means giving up my only relaxing morning of the week but I guess it is worth it to eat local produce that tastes good.

Hey, thanks for the comment and the link! Good stuff here and your doggies are adorable :) What kind of farm are you guys on??

Andrew- you are welcome. I rather enjoy your blog, amazing pictures, great stories and good recipes. I am never sure if it is proper to tell people I have linked their blogs in my blog or not. Perhaps I should write a book on blog etiquette so we all know how that's done?
We do not work the farm we live on but it is a working farm with corn, soy beans, and hay. Honestly, I am not sure of the size of the farm in terms of acreage. The farm was first settled by the English in 1703 and the main house there is an amazing 18th century gem. My husband and I live in a smaller house on the farm built in the 1940's along with the beagles. Thank you for noticing how adorable they are! And thanks again for the information on a CSA; I plan to join a local one for next season.
