Beets, squash, and leeks, oh my.
Don’t forget lettuce, potatoes, radish, carrots, papalo, plums, and eggs. This week’s CSA offerings were quite beautiful.

This is my third year in the Southside CSA and it’s always a highlight of my summer. This year I have a half veggie, half orchard, half eggs, and half (shared) berry. Officially, this share is mine alone, but I tend to cook for my roommate, my boyfriend, friends or coworkers often. The vegetables make up most of my lunches and dinners for the first week with a few things saved for the next (off) week. To keep from getting overwhelmed, I set up my berry share on the opposite week of my vegetable/fruit/egg share.
What a haul this week! Cilantro, basil, carrots, kale, leeks, beets, green peppers, zucchini, purple potatoes, corn, a dozen eggs, and two kinds of plums.

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.

Southside CSA Diary for the week of 9/20
One important thing to note about our share is that my boyfriend does not eat vegetables, only lettuces, potatoes, and raw carrots. But he loves fruits, berries, eggs, and meat of all sorts. This means I have to really make the most of the veggie share all on my own, especially as I hate to waste good food.

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.
