CSA 2009 – Week 8

CSA 2009 - Week 8

We’re old-timers at our CSA and what I mean is that we’ve been members of the CSA for a bunch of years, six actually. I think each CSA has a different system for pick up and this year our farm changed their system. In previous years they labeled wooden crates with each family name. This year they simplified and just fill all the crates and let you take whatever one you want (they all have the same amount of veggies). There are a couple of families — we are one — that get robust shares which means we get more veggies each week. They tie ribbons on the robust crates but someone accidentally took ours this week and we were left with a regular share. So, we were told to pick an additional $10 of produce from the farm stand and that is how we got those delicious orange tomatoes and all that okra. We’ll be having gumbo again soon.

CSA Bag Contents: sweet onions, new potatoes, basil, parsley, beets, eggplant, squash, okra, flowers

See what we got in CSA 2008 Week 8.
