First, I'm splitting a CSA share with a friend this season! I'm really excited. I've been eating seasonally and locally in the summer and fall anyway, but when my friend approached me about joining one, I couldn't help but say yes! Splitting the share means it'll come out to $10 a week for produce from June-November. Considering I could spend $20 a week at the farmers market, this will hopefully be a good thing. I'm also probably going to be joining a separate fruit/berry CSA, which only goes for two months but seems rather reasonable. Hopefully the new member shares open for the one that I have in mind soon.
Secondly, I'm crossing my fingers that I'll get to go to Germany for the last two weeks of May! I'm waiting for a few friends to get back to me about availability, but as soon as they do, I'm buying my ticket. The idea is to go to a few places that I love (Berlin), have friends (Köln), and haven't visited in a while but know some people I haven't seen in a while (Hamburg). No to mention going to a few yet undecided new destinations as well. I'm really hoping that this trip gets to take place because it would be the perfect break before I begin working in a chemistry lab this sumer!
