Winter CSA Week Three and a Visit to Breezy Willow

Posted on

Thanks to Victoria at The Soffritto, I found out Breezy Willow Farm Store is open on Saturdays, so today we went to get flour, cheese, and onions. I think I took the same picture as she did, so I won’t add it here. I emailed Union Mills in advance to ask about the flour and found it to be mostly all local. The whole wheat is from a bit farther away, but does include some VA and PA grown wheat.

I need to add them to our local resource page.

Yesterday, at 4 PM, I heard the cooler being closed on the front porch, which means CSA delivery. I really like getting food delivered to my front porch on Fridays. I could get used to it.

I had chosen:
beets
red potatoes
micro greens
cabbage
collard greens
grapefruit from Florida

We also got: All Beef Franks, and my bi-weekly dozen eggs

The greens looked so great. I used the salad spinner to clean them up, and made a great salad later to have with homemade beef vegetable soup that had been simmering in the crockpot.

I definitely agree with our CSA coordinators that a salad spinner, or two, is the way to go when cleaning greens, and for storing them. Every week I clean up and prep the greens to have instant access to fresh beautiful vegetables.
