Join a CSA

One of  the best things you can do for the health of your family and your bank account is to join Community Supported Agriculture.  Basically you pay in advance for a share of the farm, which helps the farmer with costs upfront.  When the harvest is ready, you get to pick up your bags of fresh vegetables and fruits weekly.  You’ll be eating organic, local food that is in season at a fraction of grocery store prices.  What could be better than that?  When it’s time to feed your baby, just steam and puree some of your share!
