I joined a CSA and I am very, very excited about it. I had no luck finding one before this year, but my luck changed and I had 3 to choose from this year. I went with Maple Creek Farm because I had the option of 3 pick-up locations and delivery is on Thursdays, so we can feel free to travel on the weekends and not miss out on our share. I am also very impressed with the communication from the farm. I follow them on Facebook and they keep everyone up-to-date with what is happening. They also e-mail me with helpful tips, recipes, videos on how to break down your share box and a list of what’s in your share that week. Here’s what we received this week.
Garlic scapes, lettuce, snow peas, kale and cucumbers.
I am happy to report that we have eaten all but one cucumber. One of my fears going in was that I didn’t want to waste anything. I realize that the shares will get bigger, but I feel up for the challenge. Everything was very fresh and delicious. For sure the best snow peas I have ever had. I made a fantastic pizza with the kale and garlic scapes that I will share on Tuesday. You are going to flip.
Are you part of a CSA? I’d love to hear about your experiences!
