Today was our first CSA* pickup. We are new to the CSA, and I have to admit, I am a bit overwhelmed. This is a HALF SHARE, believe it or not! I’m SO glad we decided to split our CSA share with a neighbor.
I’m impressed with the quality of the produce, and it’s all organic. WOOT! But now I have to figure out what to DO with it all.
Anyone have any idea what the thing in the back with the big white bulb is?
*CSA = Community Supported Agriculture
Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
