2015 CSA Share Week 4


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.


The cherries were ready a week early, so that was a pleasant surprise. We received 3.5 pounds of them, and are they ever good! Sweet and delicious.

The u-pick was open for more than peas this week, including dill, cilantro, edible flowers (hmmm making candied flowers tonight??) and cutting celery. I wasn’t going to pick since we had had a load of rain last weekend, but went out and picked a quart of snow peas. They will be used in Hubby’s recipe that is posting Monday that is oh so delicious!

  1. Super lovely share.. We arent getting a share this week since we pick up on Saturdays and its the 4th of July. Thats ok.. I have plenty of veggies on hand right now.. We went on a Farm Tour on one of our 10 farm CSA group on Tuesday so I bought a few extra things plus I got a few extra items last Friday at a Farmers Market from another of our CSA farmers who had a stand there. There is no reason to go without organic veggies in our area unless you just dont want to. 🙂

    • Sounds like you will be busy blanching and freezing, or canning, Kim.

      We processed everything yesterday. I find if I do it as soon as it comes in, it does not go to waste. Hubby has a fabulous bok choy recipe (posting Monday) that turned me into a bok-choy-lover from a hater. He wants to go for a ride tomorrow and see what we can find on the road side stands. I want to use of the fruits from last year before we buy new. 😛
