My Roots and Shoots CSA delivery begins this week. I just can’t wait! I have never done this kind of thing before and I am pretty primed by the whole mystery of what foods my share might contain, what new recipes I might try, and possibly even what new foods I might taste. Roots and Shoots is a small-scale, organic vegetable farm and a new CSA farm in the area. It is located on the Bakker Farm near Manotick Station. I am so craving fresh. I am so craving naturally grown. I am so craving seasonal.
Roots and Shoots also sells out of the Ottawa Farmers’ Market at Lansdowne Park. But the Market is not open on Mondays. With a few days of waiting to go, I decided to go to the Parkdale Market this rainy, drizzly morning to feed my fix for fresh, naturally grown, seasonal produce. I picked up a bag of salad greens from Rochon Farms. Less than 48 hours until my Roots and Shoots CSA foods arrive in Westboro. It is like waiting for Christmas to arrive.
