Last week, our first csa share started. From Myerov Family Farm.
If you don’t know what a CSA share is, it’s when you “buy” into a farm, and help support the local farmer, and then every week, throughout late spring, summer and early fall, you get a weekly share of vegetables, herbs, and maybe fruits from whatever is harvested that week.
I’ve been anxiously awaiting the start of our shares. One of the funnest aspects to me is the surprise. I won’t know from week to week, what the share will bring. I am splitting a whole share with a friend, that way we’ll see what it’s like and see how it works for our families.
Last week we received several things:
- bok choy
- tat soi
- red lettuce
- swiss chard
It was so exciting figuring out what to make.
We’ve had brown butter pasta with swiss chard and tatsoi and sage. We’ve had sliced cucumbers. Yesterday we had shrimp mizuna with thai rice noodles. And today we are gonna have the lettuce in our salad. I will also be making refrigerator pickles.
I can’t wait for this week’s share!!!
