Today I realized how sad I am going to be without my weekly CSA share. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get the autumn share because Potomac Vegetable Farms only delivers the summer share to its DC drop off locations. So now, every week I will have to venture to one of the farmers’ markets to get all my produce.

This morning, I decided to take my dog for a walk to the Dupont Circle Farmers’ Market. I purchased over $40 worth of produce – mostly veggies and a few fruits – to get us through the week:
