Buying Locally Grown Food

Over a year ago I made one of the best decisions I have made in some time – I joined a CSA, which means I joined into the movement called Community Supported Agriculture.
What this means for me is that each week a local farmer delivers a bag of fresh vegetables and fruits, bread and a sweet to my office.
I pay for six months at a time upfront and have chosen my favorites from a list of possibilities based on my personal likes and cooking preferences.
Over this span of time, I seriously believe that my eating habits have improved since the healthy food is grown, delivered and all I have to do is prepare it.
