The box is here!

small veggie box
The small veggie ‘box’ made it to my front porch… so obviously it’s not all local (bananas?) so I have a feeling this is more like a food buying coop than a CSA, but I’m not completely disappointed. Can’t wait to try some of everything! Looks like enough to last a little more than a week for me at least, cept for maybe the fruit [I eat a lot of fruit] … yaaay!

Box contents:  Bunch of bananas, half pound(?) of cherries, two nectarines,  3 oranges, 1 lb. of sweet red yams (I subbed these for kiwis), 1 red onion, 1 giant cabbage, 2 heads of broccoli, half pound of mixed greens, bunch of carrots.

Ok I’m recovering from a giant coconut, almond, & pineapple smoothie right now [mixed in my hand-powered blender]. Supercharged! Then a short run …

Peeing standing up and other things

Pee standing up ladies!  Sweeeet!  —> pStyle by Jade & Pearl

I used to use Jade & Pearl’s sea sponge tampons until I realized that sea sponges are animals (single celled, but nonetheless)! Too bad, bc those things were really handy & comfy .. but not at the expense of another being’s consciousness.  Sorry! Next step is the DivaCup I guess …

Other thing I’m excited about is that I finally signed up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) … and I did it online through Door To Door Organics, a Michigan-based company. Purists might say this is against the main idea of a CSA – to know your farmer – but for me it’s the convenience of the internet helping me to live my ideal and have access to consistently good quality organic food!  Don’t get me wrong, I love going to the farmer’s market, but i haven’t made it there once this year!   I travel a lot [lately] and am pretty busy with a lot of things, so sometimes getting to Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s is a big trip for me [plus, they’re a chain] … Since I eat a lot of fruits & veggies this is economical for me, and the box will be delivered to my door!

My first shipment in Wednesday.  Here’s to being a lazy environmentalist. I’ll let you know how it is.
