Got our box o’ veges from the CSA farm today. We are really loving out weekly allotment of vegetables and because we’re paying what seems to us to be a lot of money for our veg, we’re eating a lot of vegetables so they don’t go to waste. And, on the whole, enjoying them.
Today we received the following:
English garden peas (which are still in the pods so Precious and I shell them)
‘Buds of May’ Lettuce
Nantes Carrots (they taste like NZ carrots - very sweet!)
Red Spring Onions
French Breakfast Radishes
Albion Strawberries (AMAZING!)
Jessup’ s Ruby Grapefruit
I didn’t think that we would continue to get the box after our three months was up, but after discussing it with Handsome we decided that it was a worthwhile investment because we’re eating fantastic local vegetables, tons more than we would normally eat, and a wide variety instead of just peas and broccoli, with the occasional can of green beans thrown in.
I highly recommend you look into it. You can find info about a CSA farm near you at localharvest.org
