    You kids and your new-fangled instagram! I’ll stick to taking my photos the old fashioned way, uphill both ways in the snow . . . um, I mean filterless.
    I’m fascinated to see your CSA is only about a week or two behind mine season-wise–you’re transitioning from spring crops to summer just like we are. I love the changing of the seasons. Today I’ve linked up a transitional recipe–cool weather turnips frittered on the stove top–as well as some more summery stuff.
    Thanks for hosting!

      You sounds like my dad Kirsten! Haha.. Only not was it 2 ways uphill in the snow, but also had to row across a river and drag a horse behind him too 😉

      PS. Instagram is awesome.

      Oh yeah, and I LOVE following people to see what their CSA season is doing too! I can’t believe we’re only a couple weeks behind you!
