Two years ago, I picked up our first CSA share.
It was definitely a challenge at first. There was a learning curve. We composted a lot of vegetables. I learned to cook a lot of new items. My palate has expanded. My cooking skills have improved. Our health is better. We’ve both lost weight. We’ve saved money. We’ve felt more involved in our community and local foodshed.
We still don’t always use everything up. My husband still won’t eat beets. But I can hardly imagine not getting our CSA box.
This week we have summer’s last hurrah – again. The last two boxes have been “the last” summer produce, but it stayed warm enough to fill another box with summer’s bounty. Based on this week’s weather, they might even be right this time.
Most of my CSA-centric meals have been salads and green smoothies as of late. Delicious, but not exactly riveting blog fodder, I know.
I do have a bunch of photos to turn into posts, however. Don’t give up on me yet!
What have you been eating lately? Seriously: green smoothies, salads, sweet potatoes, repeat.
