Winter Harvest

We try to eat as local as possible here in the Indie Fixx household. It’s better for the environment, better for our community and better for us. That’s like a win-win-win.

One of the things we do is to buy a farm share as part of a CSA. In the past we have gotten fruits, vegetables, honey and eggs from May to November–then there was a big dry spell from December – April.  I could still get local honey and eggs, but being as I do not live in southern California but on the Mid-Atlantic coast, vegetable were difficult to find.

This winter is gonna be different though. There’s a farm in my area offering a subscription from January – April. I’m so super exited. Now, I know there won’t be any tomatoes or zucchinis, but there will be plenty of winter squash, greens and hearty root vegetables. I see lots of soups, stews and roasted vegetables in my future.

I plan on sharing this experimental winter farm share with you once it starts (next Thursday) and maybe you can even find one near you

Here some resources about winter harvesting, if you are interested to know how it’s done or want to learn how to do it yourself.
