2015 CSA Share Week 12

2015 CSA Share Week 12


This is the diary of our 2015 CSA share. The cost of our full share is $545 for 22 weeks, from June through October, and works out to $24.75 per week. Western New York weather is such that June is lightest CSA month. September and October will be more than abundant! The first few weeks are light, and very, very leafy. As we move to the fall, the CSA becomes more abundant, and the variety increases greatly.

We also purchased a Fruit Share this year for $180, lasting 18 weeks which works out to $10 per week. The local fruit included in the fruit share starts with cherries, apricots, plums, peaches, nectarines, blueberries, and moves into pears, raspberries and of course apples! This portion of the share begins in July.


Along about week 12 the last few years, I start telling Hubby we are not joining again next year. I get tired of seeing the same old things week after week, and processing most of it for the winter. The other issue is the parking lot at this CSA. It is small. And the CSA is large. When the U-pick is not open, I love the CSA! In and out, plenty of parking, there aren’t 16 LITTLE kids milling around the parking lot while their parents look at some stray flower, just waiting to be hit by a car. It is bad. The u-pick is great on the surface. If people would just pick and go, there would be plenty of parking now that they expanded pick-up by an hour over last year (last year was simply terrible in that parking lot).

I will once again start looking for a weekday CSA pick-up. The date matters more to me than the farm. I LOVE the produce offered on the CSA, but the vegetable? Nothing different than any other CSA we have belonged to.

This week we received 6 ears of corn that are not in the photograph. I won’t even bring them in the house. IMO corn is why pesticides were invented. The bugs just adore non-sprayed corn. We didn’t eat last week’s corn. I forgot about it, and it rotten in the garage. If we forget to use it again, I’ll just leave it in the future.

Fruit was raspberries, peaches and plums. The raspberries were so darned good that they didn’t last until today!
