CSA Box This Week
This week in our box: beets, kale, onions, cucumbers, kohlrabi, yellow & green beans, and a few currants and gooseberries.
(Here is what we had last year in the same week...).
A small box again this week - hopefully things will start catching up after the crazy spring and we will have a more bountiful late summer and fall with our CSA! It is a good thing that we have expanded our home garden this summer. We have been getting a full share for many years now and it has always been a good amount to last two adults about the whole week. Last fall was a bit smaller with all of the flooding and then this spring was just over the top and seems to really have affected many farms. With the reduced produce, a full share is not enough for two adults for a week (not to mention 2 kids), so we have really needed the extra produce from our garden to supplement our share. It is motivating me to plan an even larger garden next summer, and perhaps get some sort of season extender (cold frames, lean-to greenhouse) to supplement!
