I have been participating in a Winter CSA – my first experience with Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Several farmers have started offering CSA’s during the summer with a great response. A CSA is a contract with a local farmer that provides you with a box of fresh produce each week for a designated number of weeks and is paid in advance. The cost is usually between $15-$20 per week. The summer is a great time to experience a CSA as you get to try different fruits and vegetables as they are harvested and there is quite a variety. Recipes are sometimes provided with the produce. I get excited each time I go to pick up my basket. I don’t know what will be in the basket and that’s part of the fun for me. This season, I have roasted raw peanuts, pickled beets, found multiple ways to prepare turnip roots and just experimented with different vegetables. I have had no trouble in finding ways to use the pecans!
