Fresh Eggs & a Hike

Posted in The Environmental,The Physical by Joy on April 10, 2011

This year I joined Bull Run Farm‘s CSA. The delivery season hasn’t started yet, but the owner has been inviting shareholders out most Saturdays to pick up eggs. Today was the first Saturday I could make it, and he also had some tomato seedlings to give away and was heading out on a hike around the mountain later in the afternoon.

G– and I got up and headed out to The Plains just in time to catch the group dispersing from their egg gathering. We got a quick look at some of the farm, snagged a couple seedlings for each of four kinds of tomatoes, and joined the owner and another shareholder in a (roughly) two-mile hike up and around the mountain.

Looking forward to a few weeks from now, when I’m told we’ll likely be invited out for lettuces and asparagus. Exciting!
