2014 CSA Share Week 12

This is the diary of our 2014 CSA share. The cost of our full share is $545 for 22 weeks (this CSA offers a winter share) which will bring us to the last week in 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! Usually I feel I don’t get my money’s worth the first few weeks (which will be predominantly lettuces), but the fall bags more than make up for that.

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.

This was, IMO, a very good week! Oh not the vegetable share. The share-photograph looks full because I spent $4 to get more tomatoes to freeze. Blight has hit the area hard, and I wanted to gather tomatoes while the getting was good.

The fruit share was once again outstanding! We got 7 pounds of fruit and could choose from: white peaches, yellow peaches, donut peaches, European plums, Ozark plums and apricots. Since I’m about apricot-ed out, I chose a varieties of peaches and plums with only a few apricots for color. I am so glad I did the 20 Fresh Plum Recipes round up this week, and the 20 Fresh Peach Recipes last week – I’m clearly baking this weekend!

The vegetable portion of the share was just meh. Still, I have plenty to keep me busy this weekend with freezing those tomatoes and using up all that fruit.
