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.
Yesterday we had quite the day. Hubby bought a new truck (more about that process next week), and we drove to Ohio to get it. While we left early (before 9am), and I made good time driving down to Ohio, Hubby took longer on the way home. There was an accident on the thruway and we had to drive a round-about way to get to the CSA. We made it with 15 minutes left in pick-up time (2-6:30). I have no idea what we missed choosing this week, I just know what Hubby took.
This week we took:
• Bok Choy
• Pears (Yum, more pear crisp!)
• Peppers, sweet and hot
• Salad Greens
Do you belong to a CSA? If so, what type? How much? Do you find it as worthwhile as I do?
