Community Supported Agriculture

My Momma and Daddy kept a garden at our house on John’s Island, SC. Momma grew the very best ‘maters in all of the area. As a child, I’d stand in the garden, eating them warm from the vine, juice dripping down my chest! While, it’s not yet tomato season in South Carolina, it is time to think about supporting your local farmers.

One way you can do this is to subscribe to a local CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture program. What used to be a unique concept years ago is now a standard way to make sure your local farmer’s crops are sold and to have freshly harvested, local produce on your table. Some areas even have CSAs that offer grass-fed beef, free range chickens and eggs and locally made sausages.

Early spring in South Carolina means we’ll soon begin seeing lettuces, and berries in our CSA boxes. Then come the peaches, and soft stone fruits, followed by tomatoes and summer corn. In South Carolina, you can find your local CSA listed with the South Carolina Department of Agriculture.

If you are outside of South Carolina, offers a quick way to search for a CSA close to you. Just look at all the CSAs in my area!

Sailing Charleston Harbor

There are so many wonderful things to do in Charleston. Visitors to our Holy City often tour by horse carriage through the Historic District. Some take the tour boat out to Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor. Fewer get to enjoy sailing the harbor.

If you ever visit Charleston, find an opportunity to sail in our harbor. It’s beautiful waters are embraced by the Ashley and Cooper Rivers, flowing together to make Charleston Harbor. You often see dolphins frolicking and racing your boat as you can see in this video at the 1:37 point.

Charleston Ocean Racing Association (CORA) holds weekly races in season. This lovely video shares one of the things I love most about living here, our beautiful harbor and the colorful sailboats with their spinnakers full of wind, gracefully plying the waters.

Farmers Market in Charleston

2010 Charleston Farmer's Market Poster

One of the benefits of living in Charleston, is that our winters are mild, our growing season long and we have many incredible farmers who carefully plant, tend and harvest food for our tables. With the recent spate of mild days, I can feel the earth waking up, getting ready for spring.

As a child on John’s Island, February made us get our garden plowed, and ready to be seeded as soon as the nights began staying warm and ground temperatures were at the right point of germination.  Charleston’s Parks Conservancy offers recommendations and says you should have your seeds now.

Want to learn how to plant your own garden? The Parks Conservancy has classes coming up this weekend.

If you don’t like to get dirt under your fingernails, you can rely on our farmers who bring their produce to market. One of my favorite stops in-season is the Charleston Farmer’s Market. The City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs is in charge of the market which takes place alongside Marion Square. The market opens for the 2011 season on April 9th.

And I can’t wait!
