Hey folks - I'm a recent transplant to the northwest (coming back to fiancee's native grounds), and it looks like after months of travelling and general non-employed vacation time, we decided to finally get our butts in gear and find jobs and a place in the seattle area.
So, I am looking for reccs on two things:
- a good, reasonably priced CSA : in San Diego I was lucky enough to be part of the Be Wise Ranch CSA, although we had to eventually stop due to having far too much food for two people (and far too much mizuna/chard/collards for anybody!). The produce was lovely, and the price was reasonable - came to about 20 dollars for a box every two weeks.
is there anything similar up here? I've looked around and found a lot of organic delivery and such, but that seems a lot more expensive. Preferably a CSA that lets you pick your produce to a degree would be great too.
- a wine club or something similar: a bunch of my family and friends back in california do this kind of thing, and from the events ive gone to with them it seems to be a great way to meet people and put things on the social calendar. I know Washington makes some great wine, but I'm not sure how big the scene is in seattle.
Thanks in advance.
