Our Half Monty share of veggies, eggs, orchard, and berries is split between three
roommates: Mo, Michele, and myself, Teresa. Last month, Michele moved into her
own place, and I leave New York in just a week for the West Coast, so it’s with a heavy
heart that I cooked up this week’s share. I’ve always enjoyed cooking, and farmshare
has provided me with a welcome challenge to incorporate new items into my repertoire,
and for that I – and my palate – are forever grateful! So consider this member diary my
departing love letter to Southside CSA.

I’ve been doing the Southside CSA on and off for the past 4 years and I’m back “on” again for a bunch of reasons: the food variety is better and the share has gotten larger over the years, I’m eating more meals at home, I’ve grown more comfortable in the kitchen and it’s still really convenient for me to pick up the share at The Woods. I’m a triathlete so I don’t stop eating, ever, and the full share of veggies and half share of berries and eggs has proven to be a perfect amount of food for me. I might have people over or offer some meals to my three roommates towards the end of the week, sometimes I trade baked goods for coffee at my coffee spot or bring stuff to work to share with my colleagues but ultimately there’s barely any food leftover from the previous week and I always look forward to stocking up every Monday night. Monday and Tuesdays are my days off from my job so they’re usually heavy training, eating, and cooking/food prep days for me. This keeps the fridge relatively organized, not totally overflowing with four people’s food and I don’t have to worry about cooking the rest of the week if I take care of it all right after I pick up the share.

I have to first say how much I look forward to Monday nights and our CSA pickup. There are always surprises and everything is delicious. This is our second year as members of Southside, not just for the fresh fruit and veggies but because this group is hyper-organized, super nice, and heavily involved in building and protecting the community. Speaking of community, our share ‘family’ is myself and my boyfriend, Andy, and our downstairs neighbors, Karen & Dave. We share the ‘woods deluxe’ which is vegetables and berries every week and eggs and orchard every other week.
So, I had thought last week was the week to blog and then I got word it was this week, so I have an combination to report.
Last week’s haul:
Blueberries, Kale, Purslane, Broccoli, Lettuce, English Peas, Spring Onion, Parsley

pick-your-own raspberries @ Greig Farm
At the tail end of the raspberry season, a bunch of us piled into cars and drove north to check out where our berries comes from. Greig Farm is located in Red Hook, NY, which is part of Duchess County, just East of the Hudson River. We had about 4 cars full of members making the trek from Brooklyn through the gorgeous fall foliage of the Hudson Valley to see the land, pick raspberries & apples & pumpkins, and to hear more about Greig Farm.

The best part of joining Southside CSA (I am a second year) was how it inspired me to cook again. I cooked a ton last summer. It’s so thrilling to come up with creative ways to use the share. My stacks of recipes and cookbooks are finally put to the test.

So, apparently Ryan and Yo made some amazing blueberry-rosemary jam last week. I was green with envy and so decided to try it out myself. This is totally their recipe y’all – I am fully admitting that up front.<!
