Second CSA Delivery

Yesterday, we received our second CSA delivery. We are on the bi-weekly schedule, and I was very excited to get the box. In fact, I couldn’t wait to check out this week’s box. I know I pay for it, but it almost feels like getting a present. Anyway, here is what we got:

  • Navel oranges
  • Ruby grapefruit
  • Comice pears
  • Fuji apples
  • Savoy cabbage
  • Butternut squash
  • Lacinato kale
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Cilantro
  • Garlic
  • Leeks

It feels really good to eat organic produce that’s in season and to support local farmers. I signed up for the bi-weekly delivery because I wanted to make sure we’d like it. But I’m already thinking of changing it to the weekly delivery. We eat so many fruits and veggies each week that even if we get a weekly delivery, we can still make good use of the farmers’ markets (which is such a nice experience for the toddler, and I still want to support my "other" local farmers).

Question: What’s your favorite fruit and veggie at the moment? I love grapefruit and kale right now.

Happy Saturday!

Be well,
