Traveling up the Hudson on an early spring day
Joining a local CSA is a great way to have fresh, local veggies all summer. I joined Hawthorne Valley Farm‘s CSA program for the biodynamic vegetables and fruit.
By planting biodiverse fields, including animals in the fertilization, and by being sensitive to the rythms of the plants; Biodynamic farming nurtures the soil, animals, and people.
I make sure to clean and prep the veggies as soon as I pick them; this allows for easy use and gets me familiar with the vegetables coming in season.
