CSA: Week One

This summer, I decided to go in on a CSA share with a CHB reader. Last Thursday was the first week. Pickup was at the not-so-convenient school on Gates and Downing. Thankfully, everyone there was SO NICE.

Once you arrive, you sign in and then can go pick up your stuff. Each selection is labeled in a bin, telling you how much of everything you should take. The best surprise? Basil, cilantro and dill plants, ready for planting at home!

We also signed up for the fruit share, which was fresh strawberries this week. The berries were small, but very sweet.

The amount seemed perfect for sharing. I think it would have been too much for a single person. I already used most of the goods last night making dinner for a friend.

So far, so good.
