Since today is Wednesday, also known as CSA Day around here, I thought I’d share with you a snapshot of CSA goodness. For full disclosure, this was a few weeks ago so things have changed with the weather, but the lack of rain and intensity of heat has kept things like tomatoes and squash out of our baskets for now. Hopefully soon though! We’re supposed to get peppers today!
First up… the goodies. BTW this is the tarragon that made the salmon yesterday. Fantastic. And purple potatoes and kale are yet to come… be ready for it!!
In case you were wondering, we don’t eat the catnip. That’s for the kitty.
And then… a close up of garlic! Comparison with the iPhone for size, of course.
But a close up does no justice whatsoever to the sheer size of the entire stalk of garlic! Wowza! Can you believe the size of that thing?
It’s a good thing I like garlic…
…and as Ben says, quite obvious that I’m not a vampire. Good to know, honey, good to know.
So that’s a week in CSA-land. What do you think? Have you ever participated in CSA? If not, would you ever consider it?

I have always wanted to participate in a CSA and plan on looking for one in the next couple of months for next year!
It’s definitely something I’m keeping in mind for the future . . . the thing holding me back from taking the leap is that I’d be afraid to waste what I get!
I love the idea of a CSA. Next summer my neighbor and I are going to go in on one together. I was afraid that I’d let too much go to waste cooking for just my husband and I, and she’d had the same fears. Looking forward to next summer now for sure 🙂
CSA day is my favorite day of the week! WHOA to that garlic. Who knew it could get that large?
I need to get my hands on some garlic like that! I haven’t done a CSA yet, but I’m soo tempted to. They’re very pricey here in the city, but definitely worth it!
Now, that’s some garlic!
