Winter CSA Week Two

Posted on

I am getting used to having someone drop food on my front porch. I like the delivery aspect of this CSA, even though winter food choices get a little boring, so to speak. Still, the meat choices are interesting, and I get eggs every other week.

This week I chose:
French Breakfast Radishes
Celery
Sweet Potatoes
Large Spanish Onion
Broccoli crowns
Grapefruit (the citrus comes up from a farm in Florida, not local but really appreciated)

The meat this week was a heavy pound of Italian style beef sausages. I promptly used them in my Dark Days meal on Sunday, which I will post soon.

I like getting the smaller 6 item share. I alternate what I get week to week. If I had the 10 item share, it could get a bit boring in the winter without many choices of fresh produce available.

The beef sausage are Pleasantville Beef, in Forest Hill MD. Angus beef.

About AnnieRie

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.

  1. In my opinion, there is nothing where the freshness stands out like locally grown broccoli. Looks like you have some. Enjoy.

  2. Looks like you’ve found a wonderful CSA! We are headed to Treuth’s in Oella this weekend to pick up beef & pork to make our own patties & sausage. I never realized how much we have in MD!

    • Victoria, this CSA is a good fit for winter, when we need eggs and meat.

      I do like our summer CSA better, though, for the variety of things that I can’t get around here, or that I don’t grow. I signed up again for Sandy Spring as they deliver to the Conservancy and I am there every week volunteering. I like Breezy Willow, but don’t eat lots of bread, and swap tomatoes for eggs with a friend who has chickens. I wish Breezy Willow offered an option without bread and eggs. But, I still buy lots of stuff from them at the Glenwood market all summer. They are right next to my favorite dairy, South Mountain, at the market, so I go to both in the summer.

      Let me know about Treuth’s. I haven’t been by there in years.
