Corny Sounding Adjective? Maybe, but I am talking about Community Supported Agriculture! Cody and I finally made the plunge and ponied up the dough to get our own big box of veggies every week, all summer long, from folks who know how to grow that also have abundant sunshine and no Black Walnuts in their yards. We picked up the first box on Saturday at the Iowa City Farmer’s Market.
We have made a lentil / leek stew thingy and some really good roasted potatoes and a fine glass of carrot radish juice and a couple of really big and amazing salads so far.
Food stuffs aside, I have been riding pretty steady for the past few weeks so I am taking a rest week. Probably overkill, but what the heck, it feels good. After work yesterday Cody and I rode the tandem for an hour up in the hills North of town and today we took on the Frytown loop whole. We have much to learn as tandemeers, but I think we are doing pretty well with it and having fun, too.
Riding is going on enough that I am going to go ahead and write a letter to Chequamegon and see if they will let me in, but not on the tandem.
