This post brought to you by Nature's Care All opinions are 100% mine. Summer seems to be approaching full swing now -- finally! Unfortunately, between soccer tournaments and baseball games, we haven't had a chance to plant my raised garden beds yet, but it's definitely happening this week.

As I mentioned on Facebook a few weeks ago, I had every intention on planting my BHG Bombay Garden Vase using the three-step technique I shared last year...

As I post this, my husband is currently on his way to pick up our next CSA share -- but I figure better late than never! We've received a healthy amount of greens every week and were told to expect even more in the coming weeks, which both excites me and scares me a little. […]

Though we're only two weeks into our first CSA share, I have to say that I'm really enjoying the challenge that it's provided -- trying new foods, reacquainting myself with others, and searching for new ways to prepare old standbys.
