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.


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
• Carrots
• Eggplant
• Garlic
• Lettuce
• Pears (Yum, more pear crisp!)
• Peppers, sweet and hot
• Salad Greens
• Tomatoes

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

  1. I was running like a crazy person on Saturday morning to pick up my share, drop off my girlfriends share to her (she had 2 brain surgeries in the last month) and pick up my daughters room mate, and get back home in time to join the rest of the family to go to an out of town wedding… made it just in time.. to the minute!

    This week, which is Week 14 for us, I got 9 beautiful slicing tomatoes, 6 peaches, 3 Carmin red peppers, 4 black peppers, 1 green bell pepper, blackberries, 3 slicing onions, 3 beets with gorgeous greens, 2 kohlrabi, bunching onions, celery, romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, and baby baking potatoes.. I got an eggplant too but it missed being in the picture I took..

    I love those Carmin red peppers.. I just eat them like candy… I grew up in commercial agricultural farmland and there were fields all around us filled with carrots, peppers, tomatoes, onions & cabbages that I remember the most (and cotton & sugarcane too) and after the fields were picked, they’d leave soo much food still in the field.. and one of my favorite things in the world was when the bell peppers turned red as they all did in those days.. (we’re talking 45 years ago). I’d go grab a shirt full of the red bell peppers and chow down.. yum! Sweet like candy… it was the candy of my youth to be honest.. So were the carrots they left in the fields.. Man they were good.. I’d love to find some that taste like they used to back in the good old days! 😉
