CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Week #1

This weeks CSA included about 4 lbs of each:

Red and Green Lettuce: great for fresh salads and sandwiches
Tat Soy: Good in a stir fry
Mizuna: Used for adding flavor to salads
Arugula: Great in a salad, and my husband found a recipe for Arugula Pesto Sauce, I can't wait to try it.
Radishes: Great in salads or just eating by themselves.

Luckily our friends Tressa and Steve are splitting our full share with us, otherwise we would be giving away a lot of produce. Pictured is the full share, half of which went to our friends. The total cost per week for each of us, averages out to $11, not bad for an abundance of freshly picked naturally grown produce.

So about $22 for 20 lbs. of fresh produce? Wow! I'll say that's not bad! My CSA hasn't started yet, but based on the sign-up information, I can expect only a pound each of three to five items in my share. Yours is a steal!

The CSA's around here fill up really quickly, so it's hard to get into one. I hope we'll be able to do it next year though. It seems like a lot of money up-front, but portioned out it's not bad at all! It looks like yours is quite productive!

I signed up for a CSA because of this blog and I love it. Thanks for spreading the word!

Em, sorry yours filled up so quickly, but like you said, there is always next year.

Molly, you will have to send us a picture of the bounty you receive.
