It has been nearly a week since I picked up my CSA stash and I apologize for not having posted. We have lots of fun that we’re trying to squeeze in before school starts and birthday festivities in the works that have been eating up every second of my free time. The summer heat has finally taken a toll on Texas gardens and crops and our CSA box is showing it – no more tomatoes […]
