CSA Share Week #21, #22 and #23

As you can see the harvest has been plentiful.
I've been preoccupied with a group order I am putting together, therefore it has taken me awhile to post pictures.
We have received lots of greens~including mustard greens, swiss chard, spinach, lettuces, broccoli, cilantro, dill, basil, parsley, arugula, Chinese cabbages, green beans...sweet potatoes, peppers galore, tomatoes and a little squash
There are several items I have not listed...

We have a light frost yesterday and we are expecting warmer weather at the beginning of the week, so we should continue to reap a good harvest til the end!

A New CSA in the Neighborhood!

I have been involved with a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) for the about 7 years. I drive about 16-18 miles into town to pick it up, but it is worth it!  CSA's are a great way to support your local farmer's and get fresh, chemical free produce.  (always ask how they grow their food)
click on the links to find out about CSA's and look for one in your area.
This summer I was asked by a local farmer to help get a farmer's market in our community, so I jumped on the bandwagon!  Now after introducing fresh local produce to our neighbors our farmer is ready to introduce them to a  CSA.   Our farmer brought a 1/2 share of produce to the market today to show people what they might receive in their weekly box.  It was the end of the day for our farmer's market so I asked to purchase the box.  The cost was $12!!!  This was the regular price for anyone purchasing 1/2 share.  As you can see this is an abundant amount of produce for that price.

Pictured from top right and clockwise~

sweet peppers

1 turnip with greens

Again I want to say that this was only 1/2 of a share!!!

If you live locally and want to participate in a CSA message me and I will be glad to help you get plugged in!
