Shooting Star CSA

Locally grown CCOF-certified organic produce from Shooting Star CSA Farm

Here's just a short entry to say, look what we got!  Our family signed up to receive weekly boxes of vegetables from Shooting Star CSA, a certified organic farm in Suisun.  Last Friday, we got our first box which contained sungold tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, etc... just look at all the beautiful vegetables in the above picture!  Shooting Star CSA has 8 different drop-off sites in northern CA including a very convenient location in Vacaville.  They still have a few openings left, so if you're from around here and want weekly boxes of great veggie assortments that are both locally grown and organic, go to the site here and sign up!  My mom already made some delicious homemade pesto with the basil and we used the carrots for our carrot cake.  Getting these weekly boxes is really a great way to make sure everyone in your family is eating their vegetables.  You'll be forced to serve them at meals and cook with them all the time because come the next Friday, there's going to be another awesome box!  I sense ratatouille in the next couple days and maybe some tzatziki.  Yum!
