This is our friend Yvonne doing her distribution service on Oct.06th. She is the one who introduced us to the Southside CSA. She gave us her share on week while she was out of town and we were blown away!
Our family is 3 people- two adults and a 4 year old. The share we got from Yvonne was a full share with Veggies, Berries, Orchard, Meat and Eggs. It was the 4th of July weekend and we had way more food than we could handle. We had a bbq party and ate all we could of the amazing food.
We signed up right away!
Knowing that we couldn’t manage the massive amount of food, we asked our friends who are the same size family as us, to split a share. We chose to sign up for Veggies, Berries, Orchard and eggs.
We go to every distribution and split it up on the spot. every week we alternate who gets the eggs.
This is our split. Half a bunch of red mizuna each :) some times we just pick who wants what more.. We will take the spinach and they take the arugula..Depends on the mood.
Monday night distro has also turned into our daughters favorite night of the week. she sees her friends, stays out late,- drinks fancy virgin cocktails. Nice energy and great light in the Woods.
So for Oct.06 share: we took home corn, radishes, red mizuna, spinach, tomatillos, poblano peppers, cilantro, a half pound of Chilliquita peppers, apples, gourds, a pumpkin and mustard greens- not our week for the eggs.
We live in manhattan – its a bit of a haul. we just got a car.
So for the week of eats> Continue reading
