This weeken's CSA and grocery shopping
This past Friday's organic CSA pickup: head of lettuce, Swiss chard, arrugula,
3 green peppers, 2 round egg plant, a small jar of rhubarb-raspberry preserves, a small container of mange tout peas, scallions, tomatoes. Another great week.
Since the CSA was pre-paid in April, I have no additional cash outlay. I did stop at another farm (also organic) in search of a beloved and hard to find squash: Red Kuri. I bought 2 @ 60 cents/lb, a huge bunch of chard that the farmer literally went to the field and picked for me (I wanted huge leaves for stuffing), a doz free range eggs. $14.20 this week for groceries. I will run out of milk, hope to grab some tomorrow.
