BEAR Member Diary for Week #2

Greig Farm Share Week #2

First CSA pick-up:

My husband and I have talked a lot about joining a CSA, but this is the first time we’ve actually done it. Pick-up was too far away, or on the wrong days, or we waited too long to sign up until everything was sold out. Last year I watched one of my co-workers share some of her Southside CSA bounty with us and listened to her talk about it and asked lots of questions. And then we moved to Brooklyn! So here we are on our first pick-up day, excited, but not quite sure what’s in store. We have half shares and are on the “B” schedule. I had heard that the asparagus week one was rather measly, so I had prepared myself to not expect too much. Big surprise! 3 pounds of asparagus! Yay! I know the yields are unpredictable and that’s part of how a CSA works, but I was still very glad to see that gigantic asparagus harvest. We also got a dozen eggs from Feather Ridge.
