Drowning in CSA’s


Two in the same day. Our fall CSA ended today, and the winter one I found was supposed to start Friday but moved up deliveries to today due to the holiday.

Thankfully, the next delivery is January 6th.

I love Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative. The large number of farmers means lots of choices. Today finished the eight week fall offerings. DH carried home almost 30 pounds of veggies.

We got:
Baby bull’s blood beets
Buttercup squash
bag of kale
red cabbage
sweet potatoes
Yukon gold potatoes

Then, our winter CSA with a meat and egg option was delivered to the porch this afternoon. We picked a small share, of six items, and go on line to choose from the ten available.

One dozen eggs
One half free range turkey
cranberry chutney
red potatoes
Spanish onion
Romanescu cauliflower
Tangelos (from a small farm in the south, we will have options to buy citrus during the winter)

I can’t believe how much the CSAs have changed what we eat and how we think about where our food originates. Eating better than we did when we worked and loving the variety of it.

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
