CSA: my first delivery
This year our family purchased our first CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share. Half-share, actually–we get a box every two weeks instead of every week.
This was a big gamble on our part. We are none of us big veggie eaters, though we would like to be, and I have enough friends who have sighed at the end of the growing season that their CSA share that for them it essentially amounted to a whole summer of really expensive compost.
But look at this haul:
Isn’t that gorgeous?
Our situation this week is complicated by the fact that tomorrow morning we are going on vacation, so we had to either eat or deal with pretty much everything in the box.
Here was our inventory: 2 small bunches broccoli, a bunch of beets, some fresh dill and basil, 2 heads lettuce, 2 bags spinach (one baby and one normal), 1 bunch kale, 1 zucchini, 1 bunch scallions.
What would you do with all this stuff if you only had 5 hours to deal with it?
Stay tuned…next blog installment I’ll tell all.
