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.
Well even though that looks like not much of anything, my plastic bag broke with just the veggies in it! Heavy fall produce. The sweet potatoes were new, and since they were on my weekly shopping list, I was happy to grab them at the CSA. I also picked up leeks for hubby to make some soup.
Just a few more weeks left in our CSA adventures. Next week we have an errand out of town so I may not be picking up at all. We shall see.
