The Value of Our Fall CSA

Fall is when most of the markets go away. Buying local and organic gets harder. Our CSA provides us with fresh organic veggies. How does it all shake our from a financial standpoint?

Last week our ten items came in this way.

Turnips and greens $3.28. Carrots 2 lb.$2.98. Sweet potatoes, 4 lb. $7.98. Scallions $2.58. Collards $2.69. Cabanelle peppers $4.29. Heirloom squash $3.49. Radishes $2.97. Leeks $3.49 each! Two of them $6.98. Celery $3.98.

Total: $42.22. We pay $31.25 a week for the CSA. I still believe some of them aren’t adequately priced when I can’t find them on the web sites.

Already more than $11 up. Even after the storms, we are ahead.

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.
