Small Step

IMG_0408The other week I was looking at my CSA packing slip and I saw a section I had never noticed under “Special Items.”  “No plastic,” the checkbox said.

Huh, I thought. And I emailed my lovely CSA and said, can I request no plastic in my box? What’s the deal? And they said, of course.

So this box all my veggies came loose, with the tomatoes and peppers and green beans packed in paper sacks. Less plastic with the most minimal of efforts.

Related news: I have a loooooot of tomatoes. Is it worth the effort putting up just one jar of tomatoes? Probably I will just roast them and freeze them, but I do want to can some tomatoes this summer.
