Our CSA Share

This is the diary of our CSA share this year. The cost of a 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.

I decided not to take any salad greens this week. We haven’t been eating salads lately, and I hate to take something just for the sake of taking it. Since we have a good supply of onions, peppers and tomatoes, Hubby decided to make a pot of chili this weekend. Sounds good to me!

This week we took:

• Cabbage
• Cantaloupe
• Celery
• Green Peppers
• Kale
• Onions
• Tomatoes

Also available that we didn’t take:

• Arugula
• Beets
• Carrots
• Chard
• Collards
• Salad Greens
• Squash
• Zucchini

What we could have taken in the garden (but didn’t):

• Cherry Tomatoes
• Cut Flowers
• Yellow and Green Beans
• Basil
• Cilantro
• Dill
• Lavender
• Marjoram
• Rosemary
• Thyme

Do you belong to a CSA? If so, what type? How much? Do you find it as worthwhile as I do?

  1. Skirnir Hamilton says

    This past Monday was our pickup. We received a large watermelon which is close to half gone, about 10 to 11 peaches. So far we have made a peach bbq pork crockpot recipe for shredded meat sandwiches. I have a peach muffin recipe that hopefully I will make soon. Another 6 ears of corn, tomatoes, eggplant, 3 yellow squash, some red potatoes. These past few pickups have been quite good. Just not a fan of eggplant or squash yet. I don’t mind the yellow squash being added to our marinara sauce for pasta, but the eggplant texture when doing that bothers me a tad. My hubby liked the eggplant parmesan, and ate all the left overs. I don’t like food waste, but did waste a bit of eggplant, recently.

  2. I want to toot Didi’s horn… I despise eggplant unless its hidden in baba ghanoug or maybe if its fried and I cant tell what Im eating.. BUT… Didi made an Eggplant in Manicotti that is OUT OF THIS WORLD! I absolutely adore it… Since you dont know how much I despise it, you have no clue what my statements really mean… Ack, Puke, yuck is what I think of eggplant.. well at least until I made Didi’s Manicotti..
    Here is the link!! manicotti-with-roasted-garlic-eggplant

    I made it for M’honey just as is but I rarely eat wheat/noodles so I just made some of the filling to the side.. Trust me folks… it is HEAVEN… even if you hate eggplant. Give it a try.. If you love sausage & garlic… you are going to LOVE this!!

  3. While I went & got acupuncture & cupping done, M’honey ran to pick up mine & my girlfriend’s (who is in the hospital for the next couple weeks) CSA shares..

    This bag was a pretty full one and Im quite happy with it.. We got rhubarb, green onions, carrots, beets, leaf lettuce, yellow sweet peppers, red sweet peppers, 2 green bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, slicing tomatoes, new potatoes, 2 pints blackberries, yellow squash, & a bit of dill. I think thats it.

    My girlfriends bag is a half share & she got lettuce, tomato, grape tomatoes, an eggplant, corn and fresh basil..

    Its all gorgeous as always and my frig is stocked full of wonderful colorful veggies.
