Join your local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) – you’ll get organic produce in season for a fraction of store prices, plus it helps the environment and supports small local farmers. As a bonus – the produce keeps much longer – my local CSA literally picks the produce within 24 hours of delivery to me!
Use your produce to make your own toddler /baby food – it’s easy to cook a veggie and puree or mash it and them freeze portions in an ice cube tray!
