CSA Pick Up

A while back I mentioned that I joined a CSA and I have been enjoying the bounty of the farm for a couple of weeks now.  I wanted to share with you a little bit of what I received at pick up today. 

Summer Squash
Red Leaf Lettuce
Red Lake Currants
Red Ace Beets
Scallions
Spinach
Parsley
Blueberries
Apricots
Sugar Plums

Tonight I enjoyed the squash with a little bit of grilled chicken and had some blueberries for dessert.  The veggies and fruit are so fresh---they come with actual dirt on them!










It feels good to be supporting farmers and being a part of my community.   Do you go to any farmers markets or belong to a CSA?  If so, what do you like about it?

Cheers!

  1. Love this post! We feel really lucky that there are so many farmers markets in SF. Every week we get local produce for Owens food. It's such a great thing to speak with the farmers who grow the veggies we eat. Right now the blueberries are amazing! :)
