Wordless Wednesday: First CSA Pickup of 2012

This is our third year with a share at the local organic CSA farm. I look forward to June just for this. I went on Saturday for our first pickup and was able to pick fresh sugar snap peas and strawberries.




The first few weeks are usually thin as far as how much we get to bring home, but this was pretty good for week one: 1 bunch radishes, 1 bunch spinach, 2 romaine lettuce heads, bag of salad mix, 1 quart sugar snap peas, 2 quarts strawberries and 2 Dahlia bulbs.  



And finally I purchased some organic plants so I can try growing some food myself. I bought two cherry tomato plants (sweet 100 and sungold) one red bell pepper plant and one zucchini plant.



Hopefully I won't kill them. (I probably will).

  7. I wish we had a CSA near us. I need to look into it again. There wasn't any that I could find last year. And the farmer's market has had a whopping TWO vendors each week I've went.

  16. Looks great! When we were in a CSA it seemed like we got nothing but kale for the first 4 weeks, strawberries would have been a treat.
