Today was the day — our first CSA pickup, hooray! For those of you who enjoy following each week I though I’d mention a few changes this year. First, we will not be getting eggs. The CSA eggs were turning out to be a little bit more money than the eggs we buy from another local farm at the farmer’s market. I’m happy to spread my local shopping dollar and we’ve always had trouble with budgeting our weekly allotment of eggs. Now I’ll just pick up a dozen if I need them. Secondly, flowers won’t start for a month or so but don’t worry, they’re coming. Lastly, this year we will be getting what the farm calls a robust share. These first four weeks will be regular sized but when the summer shares arrive in July ours will be a bit larger. We eat a lot of local veggies and Tristan eats more than he used to so it seemed a logical step for us. Anyway, I hope you guys are ready to enjoy another season of CSA photos, I know we’re ready to enjoy the veggies.
