An email from my old CSA just popped up in my inbox. I haven’t had the heart to unsubscribe from their newsletter yet and I’m not sure I ever will. I opened it, I read it and my eyes swelled with sadness. Knowing I’m no longer a part of that community is depressing. I’m still very much in denial that I won’t be working with them this year. That I won’t be nourished by those vegetables anymore. I mean these veggies brought me so much JOY! But life goes on, I live in St. Louis now. It’s about time I start embracing what I have here and let go of what I don’t.

I must say though, so far, I’m having a hard time finding local produce here. I hate to be negative about this + I don’t mind altering my expectations. I also know that it was just winter and things haven’t been so green in the Midwest lately. Everyone in St. Louis keeps telling me, “just wait for the market this summer, it’s amazing, you’ll love it”. So that market better bring it because you’ve set my hopes pretty damn high. And also! This market starts on Wednesday and I can walk there! I see a whole new world opening up for me soon.

But, man oh man…bring it on baby. I really didn’t have a clue where to start. I still don’t, just fake it till you make it all day long. Was I going to grow this garden from seed? How do you even start that process and when do you start that process and again, how? I was kind of putting off the whole process. Then, I serendipitously connected with Angela and Mark, the couple behind SeedGeeks – the organic, heirloom seed company that happens to be based in St. Louis. Like right down the road from me. We’re practically neighbors.
