Food @ your door: Everyone's doing it, right?
There's something really appealing about having food magically appear on our front porch, especially given the multiple barriers between me and the grocery store these days. Plus, somehow I figure that if it lands on our porch, we'll eat it, brussel sprouts and all. My husband says no, it'll just rot. And he's the cook in our house, so his opinion carries serious weight.
One friend introduced me to the Noris Dairy idea (my kids drank that r-e-a-l milk like it was a narcotic), and someone else raved about her Organics To You delivery (and after a quick visit to its web site, I admit to liking the varied options re box size and contents). And then there's Azure Standard for bulk items.
It's (really) nice to have so many options, and in the slow food capital of the country, I'm not surprised. But which to choose? 47th Avenue Farm is right in town (and a true CSA), and then there are those groovy new businesses that'll farm your yard - or someone else's - and give you the edible results. Like The Backyard Farmer.
So have you signed up for one of these services? If so, which one? Thumbs up or thumbs down? Eating more veggies or just composting more on the back end? 'Cause I'm ready to sign me up. If for no other reason than the excitement for the kids of ripping open the box to see what's there.
