When Perfect Is Not So Perfect

If you consider yourself A Control Freak, Type A, Classic Overachiever or Total Perfectionist, then this post is for you!

CS-What?

What is CSA? Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is an amazing initiative that has actually been around for the last 20 years but has recently become a popular way for savvy, green-conscious consumers to eat local, seasonal food directly from the farmer. The idea is simple: you pay a farmer for a portion of the harvest […]
