CSA Week 8

CSA Week 8

Green leaf lettuce
Cucumber
Carrots (big ones!)
Potatoes
Onions
Moss parsley
Broccoli
Summer Squash
Garlic
Green Beans
Blueberries

Yum. Again, I'm struck by how pretty veggies are, this time with the appearance of the ruffly cabbage we got. I'm excited to let the green beans squeak in my teeth - I already ate one as I was loading up the fridge. No tomato this week - they said they're between their early crop of Siletz and high summer crop of Big Beef. I wonder if the beef tomatoes taste different than the Siletz - getting them straight from the farm, I'll be able to tell (whereas the store-bought ones all taste the same: mushy and mealy).

Just Food in NYC supports CSAs throughout the city here. They helped us start ours in Brooklyn Heights and it wasn't too terrible. Though it would probably be harder without the support - Just Food provided us with workshops on the various how-to's and supported us as we pulled our stuff together and got off the ground in 2007. Local Harvest would probably be a good place to start - they may be able to hook you up with someone similar in your city.
