CSA share, week 1

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.

    Actually, when I was getting my CSA (had to cancel due to out of townness) I had 50 weeks a year of produce. Winter was a lot of fava beans, but still…

    Oh California, I will miss you if I do end up moving.

    yes as anand says..

    you say “for weeks” but really, you mean “for years”. i only took a hiatus when i stopped cooking for about 6 months, otherwise it’s probably been about 4 years..

    speaking of which, it’s summer, which means that for two nights in a row now i’ve eaten cappellini with pesto (CSA basil + CSA garlic) with some chopped CSA (and non-e. coli) tomatoes.
