For the last two years, we’ve participated in Zephyr Farm’s CSA. If you’re not familiar with a CSA, it stands for “Community Supported Agriculture” and is basically a vegetable subscription. Ours started mid-June and ran through the end of October.
I looked forward to my Tuesday pickups, when I’d walk down the street with my IKEA bag and come back with an Iron Chef-like challenge to imagine a week of dishes with the bag’s contents. Every second week, we got the most delicious assortment of multi-colored eggs.
This year, we won’t be doing the CSA. We moved to a new neighborhood, and since J works late and I take the bus, it would be very hard for us to pick up our weekly allotment. Instead, we’ll be putting aside money to spend at the Saturday farmers’ market, which is luckily in walking distance. I’ll miss it – maybe one day we’ll be able to join again.
