First CSA box of the summer

Yup, the first one. What with us going camping and taking a road trip--and managing to schedule those to leave and arrive halfway through delivery weeks, as well as my general ineptitude in meeting order dates--this is the first one!

Yum. So, to report. 10 hours after pickup: cantaloupe gone, green beans nearly gone, lettuce half gone, tomatoes half gone, 1 carrot gone. Watermelon guarded from marauding boys, who must wait for tomorrow.


  1. What is a CSA box? I've never heard of them.

  2. CSA stands for Community-Supported Agriculture. Typically, you buy a "share" from a local farm, and then every week you get a box of fresh local produce. Our CSA is also a school fundraiser, so we get local in-season organic produce AND the school gets a cut. AND we don't have to pay for a whole season up front. I love my CSA.

  3. that is really cool. I wish we had one around here.
