operation CSA a success!

Yesterday was the first day of our 15-week CSA and, if I do say so myself, it went off fabulously! The produce was yummy (Jennie, Meredith and I couldn't help ourselves from tasting everything...especially those strawberries!), the people were excited, and the pickup process was smooth. We couldn't have asked for anything better! And now that we've got the process figure out, we can't wait to see all you CSA'ers every Thursday! (Hehe, look at how excited Jennie is for her produce!)

In other news, the 2008 Reader's Choice Awards were announced this morning and we received an Honorable Mention for Salem's Favorite Children's Clothing Store, as well as an Honorable Mention for Salem's Favorite Toy Store. Thanks so much for all of you who voted for CGB! We'd also like to extend a few other congratulations to a few of our other fabulous friends who also won:
  • Hip Baby Gear: Honorable Mention for Marblehead's Favorite Children's Clothing Store
  • Chulamama: Bronze for Regional Favorite Children's Clothing Store
  • Cornerstone Books: #1 Choice for Salem's Favorite Bookstore

  • Modern Millie: Gold for Regional Favorite Consignment Store and #1 Choice for Salem's Favorite Antique/Vintage Store
  • ...and SO SO SO many more. I didn't even get to the restaurants yet! So check out today's issue of The Salem Gazette to see who else won your adoration.
