Missing My CSA

Posted on

Two weeks ago. We ended the CSA pick ups. Not much left around here, except for what is in the freezer. And a few root vegetables.

A couple of parsnips, a turnip, carrots, an onion, all created the bed for a roast chicken. A chicken from the CSA, that fed us tonight. Gave us a chicken breast for a Chicken Caesar salad, a quart of chicken stock, plus enough shredded meat for a chicken noodle soup.

Did I take pictures? Nope. Too busy trying to deal with snow, ice, ripped down Christmas decorations, and a few downed evergreen tree limbs.

Still, the snow was pretty. Just hope it goes away. And the predicted six to twelve inches next week does not happen.

I am already so tired of snow. Where is global warming when you need it?

In other news. Howchow tells us Highland Inn will soon open. Nice of them to miss my birthday.

Crossing my fingers here. Hoping that the winter CSA over at MOM’s Jessup will get enough sign ups.

I need some veggies. I see Breezy Willow isn’t open tomorrow. Too much snow.

Should I run down to Silver Spring market? Or hit Roots for the chili fixings I need.

Stay warm, my friends here in the frigid temperatures.

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.

  2. Have you thought about the Zahradka Farm (http://www.thezahradkafarm.com/) Winter CSA? We really enjoyed their regular CSA which lasted from June to November. I know they deliver to Ellicott City/Columbia and might come out your way as well.

    • I did Zahradka two years ago. Last year they delivered on the weekend, which we didn’t want.

      I love LFFC, for the variety and that’s why I signed up to go to MOM’s for winter pick up.

  3. I’m missing my CSA, too, now that I’ve dealt with all the radishes and the only thing left in the refrigerator are carrots and turnips (and they are earmarked for pasties). The Strategic Winter Squash Reserve is mostly full up, though, as I’ve just started chipping away at the butternut squash (Friday night’s pizza) and sweet potatoes (today’s salsa).
    I hope you get enough sign ups!
