Score! It's a "Wellness Rebate" check from our CSA that we've subscribed to for this summer. This will be our second summer doing a CSA share with Simply Wisconsin, and I couldn't be more excited for this coming summer! A CSA is a great way to try local, fresh produce while supporting organic family farms. This rebate is a really great perk that Simply Wisconsin does to help make the CSA more affordable. You had to sign up pretty early (I think we did it in December), but this check makes the overall breakdown for our produce share really reasonable. June is still pretty far away, but getting this in the mail gave me hope that we'll survive to that point!
My little rosemary plant is also really eager to get back outside. I grew this baby out on our porch last summer, and it had a hard time adjusting to being indoors this winter. It didn't shrivel and die, but it didn't grow for a looooong time. In the last month or two it has started growing again, and I've even cooked with a little bit of it. I can't wait to start growing herbs outside again!
Before we know it, spring will really be here! We're so close to saying we've survived yet another Chicago winter. Bring it on!
