CSA: Community Supported Agriculture
Yesterday began the first of many Tuesdays to come where I travel just a few miles down the road to Trillium Haven Farm for my weekly organic fix.
My bounty this 1st week included: 2 heads lettuce (my choice of 4 varieties), 1 bunch bok choy, 1 bunch scallions, 1 # mixed baby greens (have you ever seen a whole pound of those babies?? It nearly filled a plastic grocery bag!), 1 # spinach, and as much sorrel as I could use. The sorrel is u-pick, so I just got perhaps 1/16 of a #. It is my new favorite herb/veggie, as of last summer when Anja, from Trillium, introduced me to it. Sharp and lemony, I use it in place of lettuce on a toasted, sliced tomato sandwich. Makes my mouth water just thinkin' about it!
The baby lettuce and the spinach are all triple washed, so I just had to come home, give it a few spins in my salad spinner (new, still in the box, at a tag sale last year for $4), and re-bag it. Anja says it should last a week like this. Problem: I think it will be gone long before a week is up!
