Week 9 CSA, 7/24/13

 This week brought the first Zucchini, Leeks, Sweet Onions, and organic Transparent apples too! Yum!

Here's the list:
It was fun harvesting something different where we had to climb instead of crawl or stoop all the time. These Transparent apples really have a lovely tangy flavor. We split about 6 buckets of apples up among the shares. Yummy!

CSA Week 8, 7/17/13

Here's a photo of a large laundry basket with a full share in it just to give you some persepective on how much food this is.
Each full share got 2 lbs of shelling peas today. It was a lot of picking, but we hope you think it was worth it! Shelling peas are so yummy. (Our family never bothers to cook them, we just eat them like candy)
To insure everyone gets everything they are supposed to, we hang a list outside the door so after we load the baskets, our CSA members can check for themselves and be sure they got all the fresh goodies they were supposed to get. (With our children helping people, mistakes are always possible. Double check, and you'll never go wrong.)

This is a half share this week. yummy!

Today brought the first of the shelling peas, green beans, beets, tomatoes, broccoli, head lettuce, red potatoes, sugar snap peas, carrots, and spinach!
Also, we are on the second round of eggs, so by the end of the month, everyone will have had 2 dozen of our free range eggs.
Tomatoes are so yummy right off the vine like this! There is no comparison.
