Week #3 Member Diary – Fox Force 5

Asparagus May 2015

ASPARAGUS SEASON! May means we are knee deep into Asparagus season. This week’s distribution was another 2 pounds. We also get an Egg Share and a Large Meat Share. Our household tends to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner most days so we have get full shares of everything.Large Meat 2015

Egg May 2015

Having been spoiled by the super fresh asparagus we get from Greig Farm, we really only eat asparagus during the month of May when it is in season here in NY. Store bought spears shipped from thousands of miles away just doesn’t compare. So for the month of May we tend to eat asparagus for every meal.  Continue reading

Week #2 Member Diary – Anya + Adam

Cover Shot
Adam and I have been members of a CSA for almost 10 years and this is our second season with Southside CSA. I’m a big cook and a pescetarian, so we get the works for our family of 3: fruit, veggies, eggs.

I like that the share starts out slow in the spring and gives us time to warm up. Later on in the season we freeze lots of stuff, or cook for potlucks and BBQs. We have a seasonal food wheel on our wall so it helps us predict what’s going to come next!

Week 1 – May 4th – Berry, Egg, Meat, Chicken

1 Week CSA 2014-05-07 011

Today was our first week, an early Spring distribution. It may have seemed like Summer, the warmest kick-off in recent memory, but it has been a long cold Winter and Spring. Now that the sun has arrived, so have some of the earliest crops, like spring onions, ramps, and asparagus. Asparagus is a perennial that pops up for several years, a fast growing flower when the temperature is right.

Tonight was week 1 of 24 in the Berry, Egg, Chicken, and Meat shares. Our partner in crime for the Berry Share is Greig Farm. Norm runs a no spray, pick your own farm, growing a variety of produce, specializing in berries. Our share follows the harvest of asparagus, peas, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, apples & pumpkins, receiving the bounty of the varying harvests.Norm has rallied his neighbors to partner with the CSA, resulting in the Egg, Meat and Chicken shares.
