Since reading “Adventures in Thrift” I have checked into some CSA’s. I have recieved a response from one, but am not sure if this is a good investment. Below is a list of7 months worth of organic veggies. I already spend about $520 a year on canned and store bought veggies.

I have plenty of storage space for canning. My goal would be to stretch these veggies out to last a full 12 months. Do you have experience with storing and keeping fresh veggies. What can I cook and freeze? What can I preserve? I am so excited at the possibilities. What do you think? Feedback wanted.

This is what the CSA is offering:
