I’m so excited that it’s CSA time. For those of you that don’t know what a CSA is, it’s Community Supported Agriculture. As a member of a CSA you purchase a share in a farm and give them money up front to grow vegetables for you. In Pass Lake, where I live my friends Brendan & Marcelle own a farm, called Sleepy G Farm. The name comes from the farm’s location, which is on a peninsula/mountain called the Sleeping Giant. Sleepy G farm is an organic farm and I work here two days a week in the summer. Great food and friends what more can you ask for.
This week we received box number 1. It has been a slow start to summer, lots of rain and overcast days, so stuff is growing at a slower pace, but our first box was still full of fresh veggies. We recieved: bok choy, koho, cilantro, scallions, radishes and fresh baby salad greens.
My first CSA meal was fresh sauteed greens with onions and bacon.
