I'm going to miss those Wednesday pick-ups
By: Christa Turnbull (Sep 29, 2009)
This was our first CSA experience and we were very pleased. The vegetables, etc. were first rate and I loved making all-vegetable meals from the produce we picked up on Wednesdays. Nothing can compare to a meal of fresh sweet corn on the cob and tomato salad with fresh mozzarella and basil. Oh, and in the spring, a sandwich of fresh radishes sliced on a good piece of sourdough rye with some butter....not available at any price. Forget those warnings you hear from some people about learning how to eat lots of kale when you sign up for a CSA. We experienced a fabulous variety of vegetables and fruit. The ratatouille I made from the eggplant and zucchini and tomatoes and garlic was so good the first time I was thrilled to make it again. And the yellow watermelon? - nothing to match it in the store. Everything was table ready. No waiting for something to ripen and develop flavor. We appreciated the opportunity to purchase the half share for the smaller family. Although next summer I will think hard about just going ahead with the full share because everything is so good. I looked forward to Wednesdays at Lakewood Public Library and discovering what would be in the canvas bag. Can't wait to see what the extra autumn goodies will be.
