This week we got butternut squash, potatoes, red onions, carrots, kale, mustard greens, cilantro, parsley, popping corn, apple and apple cider. We have a Full Monty share; We eat mostly vegan and usually have no problem getting through our fruit and vegetables each week. This is our 5th year in the CSA, so by now there are very few surprises. We have our favorite recipes for each vegetable that we return to each year.
With butternut squash, we pretty much always make a butternut squash and chickpea curry from Madhur Jaffrey’s wonderful “World Vegetarian” cookbook. (more…)

Veg + Berry + Orchard + Egg Shares – Week of Sept 16, 2013
Marla + Adam (aka Dramalama) — Our share family size is two, consisting of me and my husband Adam, and we’ve been members of the Southside CSA since 2010. Having just moved from California where the produce is known for being fresh, I was eager to join a local CSA. A long time friend of my husband shared stories about the easy pickups at the Woods, the amazing quality of the fruits and vegetables, and of course the chance to meet other folks interested in healthy farm-fresh cooking. We were sold. The ability to choose from a variety of share packages of different sizes and prices has been very helpful, since our food budget took a hit when we made the transition to New York. This year, we chose the ‘Woods Deluxe’ package, which includes a full vegetable share & berry share and one dozen eggs and orchard share bi-weekly .
Berry Share – July 1, 2013
The berry share kicks in at the beginning of the summer. Each week, we receive *buckets* of fresh blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Due to the quantity of fresh berries we end up freezing a lot of them. But whenever we’re in the mood for a smoothie, we are ready to go. (more…)

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.

Hi Fellow Southside CSAers,
I’m Tamara and I split a ‘just veggie’ and an ‘empire’ share -which comes to the same thing as a Vegan’s Deluxe ,which in my mind I’ve been calling a vegan’s delight – with my boyfriend and our 17th month old son Meshak. We aren’t strictly vegans but we eat a plant based diet 6 days a week and cook most of our meals at home. We try to keep at least part of every meal raw. Usually that means we are experimenting with ‘salad’. Over the past year, we have been converting to a completely organic diet (having a kid will do that to you). It’s a process. An important part of that was joining Southside CSA this year and we are super excited about what’s to come.
Since the season is just getting rolling our share included:
½ pound of asparagus
1 qrt of strawberries
…both of which were easily carried home on the bottom of Meshak’s stroller.
