Seasonal Eating for Your Soul

September 7th, 2012 | by Becky Striepe

Fun fact: On Wednesdays I help Vegetable Husband, a local CSA, by sharing the week's harvest on their blog along with some recipes to help folks cook what's in their baskets.

It's been really fun, and this week I showed up early to follow the team around while they sorted veggies. I'm going to be sharing my experiences here, too, and if there's anything you guys would like to see, ask away!
