In case you didn’t know…

…one of my dear fiends is a great writer. She’s also a businesswoman, a musician, a teacher, a photographer, a visual artist, and in some cases, a mother confessor. Haha. (Ask me how I know this.)

BFF Kay’s new business endeavor, along with her husband Bob, is a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) project, whereby they grow and sell organic vegetables and fruits, free-range eggs and cheeses, and other homegrown/homespun products. A few lucky saps get to invest in the harvest, and the Thriller and I jumped at the chance. So now, we have a summer full of goodies coming our way — delivered right to our door. Beyond cool.

Since the Thriller’s high blood pressure scare several weeks ago, I’ve become much more interested in — and concerned about — the many chemicals we ingest through pesticides and hormones in produce and meats, and the preservatives in canned goods and prepackaged foods. It’s frightening. No wonder we’re all getting sick and sicker, truly. No joke.

I might be turning into a tree-hugging leftover hippie, wearing peasant blouses, hemp skirts, huarache sandals and flowers in her hair. That’d be OK with me (and would delight Kay to no end).

Anyway, go check out Kay & Bob’s business over at Thistlefink Gardens. While you’re there, click around and see the pictures and the stories. Much to see and read, and all of it good.

Happy weekend! I’m sure it’ll be too short, at least for me.

Ooooohh! Looks & sounds yummy! Do they deliver to TX, per chance? :-) One of the many things I miss about my days living on Maui – all the fresh veggies & fruits that were so easy to come by!

Oh I’ll bet you miss that. Not much farmland in your neighborhood! We are already sampling their produce and eggs, and they are wonderful. Talk about free-range chickens: her hens are spoiled rotten! They come to her and let her pick them up and pet them! HA
