CSA recap
 
Last week was pick up for our CSA (community supported agriculture) haul from the North Creek Community Farm. It was our first year doing it and we split our share with our neighbors. Although we still grew all the usual stuff in our garden (tomatoes, basil, herbs, broccoli, beets, hops, etc.), we decided to do the CSA in hopes of challenging ourselves. And challenge we did, we ate things we ordinarily wouldn't buy like fennel, kolrobi, tons of kale and so on. It was fun to go pick it up each week and not know what we were getting. Surprisingly, we used about 80-90% of the veggies each week and the rest we didn't get around to and we fed to the chickens. Each week we got a cute little newsletter with notes from the farm and the some recipes and most weeks we tried to make at least one of the recipes. Some were better than others. So there you have it – everyone's a winner. We would definitely do it again.
