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

This is our third year with Southside CSA and the coming of the new season has become one of the most exciting parts of our year! We are a couple sharing a half monty, including veggie, orchard, and egg share, as well as a half berry and half chicken share. We did do the meat share last year but felt like the chicken share would match our eating habits better this year. A half share for two people seems to be the right amount for us, as we both work busy jobs, but try and eat most of our dinners at home during the week and at least one big meal during the weekend.
This week was the first week of veggie share, which was very exciting. Here is the share in all of its glory on our dining table once we got home on Monday night. Especially impressive this week were the amazing amounts of strawberries and yet another beautiful big chicken from Feather Ridge:
