Have you ever heard of community supported agriculture (CSA)? If you have, awesome..If you have not, a CSA is basically a group of people in a community that contribute to fund a community garden. In return each share holder receives fresh, locally grown, pesticide free produce weekly from May until frost! Until a couple of months ago I had no idea there were CSAs in our area. Johnny and I decided to buy a share and see what a CSA is really all about! We are members of Vegetable Land :) So far we have received four weeks of goodies, the first week we got morel mushrooms, the second week we received tomato plants, pepper plants and basil plants and the past two weeks the produce has started to come in!
My goal is to post how I use the produce that we receive, clearly I am a bit behind however I did snap a couple pictures of these past weeks!
Here are some pictures of the past few weeks as CSA members..
I had to plant in my grandparents garden because we are still living in an apartment but hopefully next year I will be putting these guys in my very own garden!
lettuce, arugula, dandelion greens, garlic chive, and daikon radish
Week 2 of produce:
lettuce, spinach, mint, garlic scapes, cherry radishes, and sugar snap peas.
(apparently Burli like sugar snap peas?)
