I joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) for the first time. This means I get a box of fresh, local, farm-grown vegetables every week for eight weeks. This particular CSA supports Karen refugees (who make up 7% of Myanmar population) who grow Asian vegetables for their families as well as the CSA. The first week included romaine lettuce, kale, sweet onions, pea shoots and strawberries. I finished eating everything – with the help of my daughter – on the night before it was time to pick up the next box.
