Berry means Asparagus in May

Blog entry for a Half Share of MONTY DELUXE — Week B.
Pick up date: May 12, 2014 — Week 2 of Summer ’14!
The half share means I only pick up every other week.
My share is just for me, & a few lucky friends who occasionally get what I can’t finish 🙂

Yellow Bell Eggs

The Summer always starts a bit light, as things are just beginning to grow after the long winter, so we only got one veggie this week: Asparagus! However, it was amazing, and I am still trying to finish it. We got a huge bucket of asparagus — 3 & 1/2 pounds!! — from Grieg Farm, and I got a dozen eggs from Yellow Bell Farm.

Our household stats: We are a family of four (two adults, a four-year old, and an infant) with a Week B half-share of both Veggie and Orchard. It takes us a full two weeks to use up all the produce. Sadly, Berry and Egg Share season is over. This week we enjoyed hearty meals featuring roasted potatoes, roasted butternut squash, apple crisp, hot apple cider, snake bites (IPA with cider!) and kale salad. Lots of kale salad.

Anastasia Member Diary Week #12

pic by allegra palmer This is my sharemate and I’s inaugural year with the Southside CSA and the Bridge share is the highlight of our Mondays. One us is from a ranch on the West Coast and the other is related to the head of Slowfood USA so we were thrilled to find such an awesome option in NYC.  Despite the heat wave last week, we had our oven roaring and put together some fantastic dishes including walnut zucchini bread, a salad with roasted leeks and potatoes and roasted kale and beet quinoa.
