The End of the Road

Week 12 Breezy Willow Early Bird CSA. I will miss my Wednesday trips to the farm. This CSA is such a great value, and you get so much for your money. For us maybe, sometimes too much, but still it is one awesome CSA.

Today:

The biggest celery cabbage I have seen (and I took the smallest one there)
One humongous green romaine lettuce
Two pounds zucchini
Two sweet onions
One eggplant
One bunch asparagus
One bunch chard
One pound spinach (I picked the smallest ones to make salad)

Plus, either eggs or yogurt. I love Breezy Willow eggs and since this was the last week, I chose eggs.

And, the bread. Honey Whole Wheat. There will be egg salad made. And, deviled eggs to take to a picnic. Pure heaven is homemade egg salad with a great loaf of bread.

There is ratatouille in my future. I have some tomatoes in the freezer. We got onions, eggplant and zucchini. Sounds like the perfect fit.

Of course, for us, summer means farmers markets. And Glenwood is where I will continue to get Breezy Willow eggs and Great Harvest bread. Along with my TLV meats and Stone House baked goods.

Who needs grocery stores? Not us, well, except for staples like vinegar, sugar, beans and those other things we can’t find at markets.

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. I got there about 3:30 and the eggs were gone. Just yogurt.

    • I was there early, about 2:15. I love the yogurt but wanted those last eggs. I ended up buying a quart of vanilla yogurt and a fresh mozzarella.

  2. On value added weeks you can always get eggs. We do not set out the value added and eggs at the same time because members get confused. We always have eggs, just ask. 🙂

    • Thanks, Casey. Now that I think about it, I asked for eggs as they weren’t out. As first time Breezy Willow members, it took a little while to know all the things like being able to swap bread or eggs.

      I think you all have such a wonderful CSA.

  3. Well that figures. There was a man refilling the yogurt containers and something he said led me to think that we only had yogurt as an option. No big deal though, seriously! I have been wanting to try the yogurt anyway.

  4. We will do our best to make the value added weeks more clear to our members. We welcome all feedback/questions. Our members satisfaction is MOST important. You are not just “members”, you are very much apart of a big CSA family.

    @ Marcia- I hope you enjoy the yogurt. We always have eggs for purchase, also our farm store is open every Saturday from 10-2. Thank you all for your support!!!

    • Premium breads and eggs are always a part of our CSA. It is every 4th week that you get your choice of eggs or another farm fresh goodie. Our Summer/Fall CSA starts the first week in June and for those who have not signed up yet, we have a few spaces left, http://www.breezywillowfarm.com Please also know our farm store is open every Saturday from 10-2pm. We are now open all year instead of just seasonal. Come on over and thanks again for supporting our local farmers
