CSA


I feel so lucky that we live where we can join a wonderful CSA (community supported agriculture) at Sweet Land Farm. It’s so fun to go get our veggies every Tuesday evening and to (sometimes) spend some time at the farm picking our own (beans, peas, strawberries). You can imagine that as vegetarians (well…the hubby does cross over to the meaty dark side quite often) we eat a ton of veg, but we’ve still been overwhelmed by the volume of wonderful produce we’ve gotten from the farm. Last night we brought home:
  • Lettuce (leaf and endive)

  • 5 giant tomatoes

  • 3 lbs. of new potatoes

  • 1 head of cabbage

  • 5 cukes

  • 2 zucchinis

  • 2 Japanese eggplants

  • garlic

  • 2 sweet red peppers

  • dozen eggs (we pay for these separately)

There was also kale and chard (we have our own…plus I’m kind of worn out on kale) that we didn’t take.

Tonight I’m going to make a tomato and basil frittata with Grana Padano while the hubby makes roasted new potatoes with onion and sweet red pepper. Bon appetite!

  1. Getting stuff straight from the farm is so much better. I just moved out of NY to a more rural area and the difference is obvious.

  2. I agree, Carl. The awesome local food and wine scene is actually one of my favorite parts of living in Upstate NY. It makes dealing with the snow (almost) worth it!
