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.
We are supposed to get 22 weeks from the CSA, which would put us into November. Last I heard, we were scheduled to end right before Halloween which would put us at 21 weeks. Hmmmm and stay tuned.
This week we were supposed to get Asian Pears – one of my favorite things from this CSA, but they were not yet available. Darn it. We did get giant Honeycrisp Apples
