CSA, Week 2

I just picked up my second CSA order.  Zina, the woman who runs the CSA, gave us 3 shares instead of the 2 we had ordered this week.  So I have LOTS of extra veggies to try to use up.  If you have any suggestions, holler!

This week, I also got the first delivery of my meat share.  Looking forward to digging in!

Here's what I got:
- 11 (!) pickling cucumbers
- 3 beefsteak tomatoes (double the size of my fist)
- 3 summer squash
- 1.5 lbs strawberries
- 10 NC peaches (Mmmmmmmmm....)
- enough green beans for 4 people
- a bag of mustard spinach
- enough new potatoes for 4 people
- 1 head of garlic
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 1.5 lbs beef cube steak
- 1 dozen eggs


  1. Hi Lindsey,
    I know your grandma and she gave a link to your blog.
    We were in a CSA last year and we didn't get any of the great things you got. We are just going to our local farmers market this year instead.
    I made a peach pie today. YUM!
    We also went blueberry picking and I made a crisp.

  2. I got lucky with the CSA I found. She collects goodies from 30 farms in my area, and we get stuff from all of them in the baskets. We even occasionally get things like baked goods, goat cheese, nuts, and honey!
