CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and consists of a group of individuals who support a farming operation by purchasing produce boxes.  Two weeks ago I received my first box of colorful, organic produce from Full Circle. We signed up to receive one box every other Thursday and for an additional $3 it is there waiting on the doorstep for me when I wake up. I'm slightly embarrassed about how excited I was to open it and rummage through the variety of fruits and vegetables, everything looked scrumptious! For this week's delivery, I learned that I can customize my box and add items from the 'Green Grocery.'

This week's delivery:

Cucumbers, Organic - 1 each
Full Circle, Carnation, Washington.
Bagged Carrots, Organic - 1 pound
