Yesterday, we got our 2nd basket from our local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). This is our third summer participating in a CSA. It's been fantastic each time. The past two years, we had to drive 30 minutes to pick up our weekly share. This year, a farm in our town started a CSA. We shop at the farm store anyway, so we eagerly signed up, hopeful that it would be just as good as the previous farm. So far so good! The only downside is that we also got a fruit and egg share from the previous farm, but that's not available with this one.
If you've ever participated in a CSA, you'll know that it means you need to free up lots of fridge space. I've been meaning to clean my refrigerator out for the past few weeks. Ideally, I wanted to have it done before we got our first share. I didn't get to it until today.

I cleaned out all the old junk, wiped down the surfaces and washed the drawers. Now there's lots of room for my fresh, local produce. And, for the strawberries the kids and I are going to pick later today. Yum!
Interesting Factoid: Remember when everyone put an open box of baking soda in the fridge to absorb odors? According to this, it's a myth. That box of baking soda is just another piece of clutter. Keep the fridge odor free by wrapping food properly and cleaning the fridge regularly.
