We are very blessed to be a part of a local CSA. Heirloom Italy - AP Marrone Farm
Weekly we get a box full of veggies. There is always a great variety. During these months of veggie abundance, we try to plan our meals around our box. All the veggie scraps and peelings go to our compost pile aka: the "Veggie Drive Through". Our chickens come running as soon as they see us heading towards it.
In an effort to use all the veggies and limit our waste, I always make a huge container of salad for the fridge. This makes packing my lunch for work a breeze. It saves time later on when the heat is blazing and we just want something cold for dinner...like a salad.
