2014 CSA Share Week 17

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.

There are four more weeks after this left in our CSA, and I’m ready for it to end. Unlike a lot of people who love fall produce, fall vegetables don’t really do it for me. There was a lot of different choices this week, but it was the same stuff as last week and the week before that, and the week before that. Meh.

This week’s fruit share was apples (which we don’t need) and plums (which we definitely do not need). Next week I was told Asian Pears, so THAT excites me!

Hopefully Hubby does some cooking again this weekend because we have broccoli coming out our ears, and I could really go for some broccoli cheese soup!

  1. Hi, Ann
    I was thinking about how you only have 4 weeks to go…and how you’re not taking all the produce offered.
    Have you already paid for the produce? Cause I was thinking, if you have, you may want to consider storing some over winter.
    Some items like fresh apples, potatoes, beets, carrots, onions can be easily stored over winter and they hold their freshness beautifully.
    Each item has varying (preferred) storage method and the in this case, the internet is your friend. 🙂
    Of course this is on the assumption that you’ve already PAID for it and are letting it pass you by.

    • I don’t take all the different items offered, but I fill my allotted bag with what we like, Barbee. I am sorry for not being clearer.

      We can (and do) store until the end of December, but then we head down south to all the citrus-y fresh goodness being offered there!
