Emma + Charlotte Member Diary for Week of June 29th

Week 3 of the vegetable share!

Week 3 of the vegetable share!

As close friends and roommates who love to cook and eat together, Charlotte and I signed up for the CSA this year excited to challenge ourselves and have fun! We subscribe to a weekly vegetable share and a bi-weekly egg share. We often eat at home with friends and try to bring lunch every day.

A fridge full of greens is a beautiful sight, but also an intimidating one. In preparation for this week’s blog post and in need of a little inspiration, on Monday we invited our friend Natalie over for dinner!

Nat and I picked up the haul and headed home along South 4th Street. The early evening sun and sweet smell of kale guided our way. Upon arriving home, we oggled at the bounty. Then, we got to work.

First we lit the oven for roasting, cued up the food processor, and bagged most of the greens in plastic grocery bags to keep them fresh. We chopped the green part of the garlic off to dry it and stored it on top of the refrigerator. We sliced some of the radishes and stored them in a jar with cider vinegar, pepper, paprika, and a dash of sugar for a quick pickle to use throughout the week. Continue reading

Jonathan + Kristie Member Diary – Week of June 22

# Distribution

IMG_6613 IMG_6622

Kristie and I live with two dogs, Bijoux and Roux. They don’t get much of the share, although Roux was pretty into the sugarsnap pea we gave her. We share a half-share of veggies and of orchard (which hasn’t started yet). This doesn’t seem like much, but it can still be challenging to store and cook all this food.

Pro tip: occasionally you can buy extras like loose cartons of eggs or a spare chicken. This is a great way to sample tasty new CSA eats, and figure out if you’re ready to sign up for a share the next season.

Our schedules are pretty busy and we eat out or order in a *lot* for the sake of convenience, but one of the reasons we do CSA is to slow down and try to cook and eat more together, in the house. I *love* leafy greens, so this weeks share was pretty exciting: spinach, rainbow chard, mizuna, radishes, garlic, garlic scapes, lettuce, snap peas, and broccoli rabe. We also scored some Maple Syrup samples from the [Circle C Maple Farm][] in Pine Bush NY. Thanks guys!

I had distribution duty this week and was handing out the meat share. It wasn’t long before I was wishing we’d ordered some; luckily there was a spare chicken, so we picked that up (along with a loose carton of eggs).

By the time distribution was done it was a little late to cook and eat, so we grabbed a bite at Landhaus (the grill at the back of The Woods). After eating, we shlepped our haul home.

*Pro Tip: we’ve got a ton of tote bags, but we set aside the orange ones (with a few extra plastic bags stowed inside) for CSA. This makes them easy to find and grab.* Continue reading
