This summer Peter and I (ie. I) decided to get a small veggie share of a local CSA. It's something I have wanted to do for a while. I love veggies, but we tend to get a little stagnant in our dinner choices, and I'm excited to be forced to try some new things.
Today was our first pick up!
Unfortunately, I had to work, so it was up to Peter and Bella to visit the farm and make our selections.
The way our farm runs things is that they have bins of all the vegetables set out labeled with how much each size share gets. You walk around and pick which things you want, and there is a swap box for if you don't like something available that week.
We decided to do the small share because there are basically only 2 of us eating this stuff, and we do still have the garden growing. I'll admit I was a little nervous that as nice as it is to support local agriculture, it wouldn't seem like we were getting our money's worth.
I'm not so nervous anymore :) This week's share is:
And our first CSA meal:
Lemon rice (nothing from the CSA)
Chicken with garlic scapes and capers (Scapes from the CSA. It was delicious, but I think the capers were a little over-powering)
