Farm Share

This summer we ventured into the wild world of Community Shared Agriculture (CSA’s) otherwise known as farm shares.

Our reasoning for exploring this was threefold.

1. We were bored. Well, bored of eating the same veggies over and over.

2. We have a child who actually eats veggies right now. Therefore we figured we should feed him as many as possible now so that when he decides in a few months that he hates them again, he will have stored up enough vitamins to last for a while

3. It is good for the environment or something like that.

Having spoken to various people who had done it before, we searched for a farm that had both a convenient pickup spot and a small sized share.  I have to say it has been a big success. We have gotten all kinds of vegetables, may of which  we had never tried before. We have had a range of greens (Kale, Swiss Chard, Mustard Greens), squashes, tomatoes galore (good thing we love fresh salsa), Beets (okay, I admit it, am getting sick of the beets),  Eggplant (eggplant parmesan is yummy, not sure about plain eggplant yet), Lettuces, Cukes, Broccoli, and many more.

Jace seems to be enjoying it. He has showed up the proper way to eat a pepper…

Step 1, lick it to make sure it is fresh

Step 2, take a bite or three

And that carrots can make a good hiding place…

Here’s one different beet recipe that might change them up a little, Sweet Beet Cookies. Haven’t tried them yet myself.

Care to comment?
