CSA: Week 25

I have finally reached the end of my CSA journey.  Well, not quite, as I signed up for a 7- or 8-week "fall extension," but I am not counting that.

What did I think?  Well, it was pretty neat not having to go shopping for produce each week.  I prepared vegetables I would have otherwise not used, like radishes and beets, and were introduced to a few new ones, like tatsoi.  The experience also reaffirmed that I find lettuce boring and I need to find a better way (or improve my technique) to cook eggplant.

This was the haul for the last week:
  • Red meat radishes
  • Yellow onions
  • Arugula
  • Leek
  • Cilantro
  • Green cabbage swapped for French breakfast radishes
  • Red leaf lettuce swapped for cilantro
  • Applesauce
  • Red raspberry jam


  1. Is this something you get to renew every year? Will you cancel?

  2. I have to resubscribe every year. I think I will probably do it again, but I am not 100% sure -- I think I wasted a fair amount, which is a bad thing.

  3. We basically cancelled because in order to eat all of it we would have had to eat at home practically every evening of the week — and we love going to restaurants, we don't like three lettuces a week, etc. It was just too much for two.
