Summer has finally arrived! It’s hard to believe that eight short weeks ago I was blogging about this…
Yikes! And today it was a sunny, mid-80 degree day.
A couple weeks ago we started receiving boxes from our CSA, Treasured Haven Farm. This is our second year with this farm and so far have had a wonderful experience. This year I hope to document all of the boxes that we receive so that others can see the incredible value that comes from being a CSA member.
This year we purchased a large weekly mixed fruit delivery (not all local fruit, but all fruit is organic and in season across the U.S. and North America), a small monthly specialty fruit delivery (for canning/freezing, etc.) and a basic weekly veggie box (organic, grown at the Farm).
Week 1: Fruit only delivery. This season’s cold Spring and intense rain delayed veggie deliveries for most area CSAs along with several of the local farmer’s markets. This veggie box will be made up at the end of the season.
Week 2: Fruit (both a weekly and monthly box) and Veggies. A small number of veggies, but most CSAs didn’t even deliver a box this week.
Week 3: Fruit and Veggies. We received quite a few spring onions and radishes. We definitely have enough to grill onions as a side dish this week and to make a lovely radish salad (recipe coming soon).
