Belated CSA posts, sorry. The job change has not made it convenient for me to post. This started when we decided to do the fall farmshare and I started working 3rd shift, so Lou had to pick up the farmshare. I was an absolute mess for a few months while my body tried to adjust to the new sleep schedule. Which didn't end up working. I took pictures for every one, but only uploaded 2 pics to Flickr, it looks like. I'll have to try to fix that, just to update. I don't think we'll do the fall one again. It ended up not being as many squashes as Lou had hoped for, I think. We got a dozen eggs EVERY week tho, and we were ROLLING in them.

Anyway, we're on the 3rd week, and I've not posted but to Flickr and Twitter, so I am now trying to catch up.

CSA #1

Braising mix, kale, pea greens, apple jam, half-dozen eggs, fresh thyme, pint of strawberries.

I'm drying the thyme, we ate the kale and braising mix by braising it all together, but I need to learn to braise better; I added too much water, and it really should have just been a small amount. Still, it was good. I ended up throwing out the pea greens this week as we hadn't had them and they'd gone limp. The strawberries were eaten, and the eggs have been all used up as well. Still have the apple jam, along with a bunch of jam from previous years. We had a dozen eggs in the fridge when we started the farmshare, so I ended up hard boiling 8 of those (the others got used in egg dishes), and they've been pretty good with the de-shelling. I think we have a half-dozen still in there from last week, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

We started out pretty good, with finishing most of what we had from Week 1. On to Week 2!
