I know Foo’s been getting her CSA share for weeks now (damn you, California), but ours only just began last week. I switched to Sweet Pea this year, which gets its veg from Garden of Eve over on Long Island. It pained me to leave Hearty Roots, but getting over to Greenwood Heights early on Saturdays was just a little too much to take on last year. Plus, we had the option of a fruit share with Sweet Pea, which is already repaying itself in spades. We’ve gotten two quarts of strawberries two weeks in a row now, and they nearly rival Berried Treasure’s tristars. This week’s batch were so ripe they had that jammy, almost-fermented sweetness. Which I love. They could be a little more generous with the rhubarb. One stalk last week. Two stalks this week.
