Starting in on the freezer

We finished up the last of the Christmas dinner left-overs last week and started in on what we have put up in the freezer during the summer and fall. Two years ago we had one share in our CSA and we ran out of our freezer stores around the end of March. This past year we had two shares in our CSA so we should have enough to get us through to the end of May which is when our CSA and farmers' markets really get going again.

CSA starts up again on Tuesday, June 16

I am really looking forward to the CSA shares this year. It should be a lot easier to use all of the items we get this year now that I will be working in a completed kitchen.

Just in time too - we just started our last batch of frozen blue-barb from last year.

CSA review

First a quick Q&A:

- Will we sign up with the CSA again? Yes
- What did it cost up front to sign up? $325
- What would the food have cost in the grocery store? about $440
- How did the food compare? Mostly better. When an item was bad - it was really bad.
- How many bad items were there? 3 - A head of lettuce, a tomato, and an ear of corn.
- How were store prices determined? Taken from New Seasons market web-site each week.

- If you have other questions, just let me know and I will update this section as best I can.

Now on to the review:

We finally got into a CSA!

It took almost two years to get through the waiting list. We could have gotten into one sooner if we were willing to do an extra 30 minutes of driving, but we wanted to support local farmers AND reduce our carbon foot-print a bit.

We are trying out Sun Gold Farm because they deliver to the Intel and Nike campuses once a week.

I can make a few things for Mary Ellen with the summer squash, zuchinni, and cucumbers; but being alergic to them myself, I am sure that we will end up donating most of these to a local food bank.
