Wonderful CSA!

By: Amie Ritchie    (Mar 27, 2012)

I am a dietitian and when I looked for a CSA for my household I had a few requirements- variety in produce, hot peppers for DH, and plenty of fresh tomatoes and greens. This CSA has more than met our needs and Jennifer is always friendly and ready to help with ideas for how to prep some of the more varied produce. I have gotten ideas from her and elsewhere and its inspired me in my own food related blog, as well as modifying existing recipes to use some of that produce.

We are a household of 3 adults and a # of sugar gliders, and between our own eating, and canning, dehydrating and freezing for winter, we use most of the produce (I occasionally gift items to friends when I know we just won't get to them).

The gliders eat small amounts of produce daily, year round, so feeding them uses small amounts of many of the same items I feed us. Total- they eat maybe 1/2 a cup a day, but a lot of that is fruit. It's the one thing this CSA doesn't have a lot of, so I do buy that elsewhere, but there is some from the CSA as well.

We tend to do Summer and Fall sessions as those have more of what we eat. My husband and daughter aren't huge on greens, and I wind up dehydrating a lot of them if I am not going to eat them, so the spring session of mostly greens is not as important to OUR household.
