Goodbye natural gas you dirty boy! It’s over between us! #6

in Alternative energy, sustainability

Part of trying to live a more sustainable lifestyle is thinking about what we eat in a new way. I’m trying to grow some and I have also invested in Community Supported Agriculture CSA. With a CSA, you invest in the farm and in return they plant, tend, harvest and deliver your share of what is produced on the farm. My CSA is Texas Daily Harvest a certified organic farm and dairy.

Here is a picture of a crust less quiche I made Saturday using the eggs, broccoli, onions and fabulous feta cheese I received. (My son doesn’t like feta so I put roast beef on his half.)

Note: The wine is a local Texas wine. Texas makes some pretty decent wines.

Today I picked and ate my first tomato.

I’m also growing eggplant, squash, cucumbers, bell pepper and lots of herbs, figs, persimmons, blackberries, grapes and apricots.

It’s a start. Someone wise once told their daughter the secret to success on her wedding day: Start. Keep going.

Now you’ve convinced me to add the feta to my order. I’ve been having fun with my CSA too. I’m not sure if I’m keeping it healthy though – I’m smearing their grass fed cow butter on the veggies like it’s cream cheese! It’s so good!

The butter is really good. I put it all over my beets. I can’t wait for the okra.

Oh, but the butter is healthy! All that good CLA, and saturated fats from grazing animals is really, really good for you. And if you like feta, you should try ours. It puts the bland, store-bought stuff to shame.
Thanks guys!
