Member Diary: Kline’s October 15th Share

 

Our share name is KLINE and we are Katie Kline and Brett Scieszka. This is our third year as members of the Southside CSA! We have a veggie, egg, and berry share. I am a graduate student in visual arts at Columbia and Brett is a bartender at Vinegar Hill House (http://vinegarhillhouse.com/). Unfortunately our current schedules this fall have not allowed us to pick up every week any more so we are now dividing our share in half with a friend, Beryl. Even at that rate – we still have enough food to fill most meals – heck look at that squash!
For 10/15 we received the following:
1 bunch collard greens
1 bunch kale
1 generous bunch cilantro
1 GIANT long island squash (I don’t remember the exact name)
12 apples
1 dozen eggs
2 tomatoes
6 jalapenos
1 bunch radish

Beets, squash, and leeks, oh my.

Don’t forget lettuce, potatoes, radish, carrots, papalo, plums, and eggs. This week’s CSA offerings were quite beautiful.

Member Diary: Meeshka’s July 16th share

Our Half Monty share of veggies, eggs, orchard, and berries is split between three
roommates: Mo, Michele, and myself, Teresa. Last month, Michele moved into her
own place, and I leave New York in just a week for the West Coast, so it’s with a heavy
heart that I cooked up this week’s share. I’ve always enjoyed cooking, and farmshare
has provided me with a welcome challenge to incorporate new items into my repertoire,
and for that I – and my palate – are forever grateful! So consider this member diary my
departing love letter to Southside CSA.

Member Diary: 73 Devoe- week of June 25th

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
