What have I done!

Things are getting less vague and more REAL ... just got a list of what will be in my first box! In addition to decorative Indian corn and pumpkins ...

  • "Radishes, either red, round or long and white
  • Spinach - 1 pound
  • Cranberries - 2 pounds (these are fresh)
  • Brussels Sprouts - straight from the field, supposedly better tasting because they have been frosted. They will be still on the stem, you have to cut them off yourself.
  • Carrots
  • Bok choi
  • Broccoli or Chinese cabbage
  • Kohlrabi or turnip
  • Winter squash
  • Salad mix - 16 ounces. This should be some salad.....we anticipate having 9 ingredients in it. One challenge is that some of the leaves in the salad are longer than we would like. Interesting things going on in the greenhouse."
Also, I can get kale, collards, mustard and cilantro if I wish. The farmer is clear that this is the first Winter CSA offered in this area, and exactly what will be going on crop-wise and weather-wise in the fields is an unknown. So we are all on this wild culinary ride together.

I love the changeable and adaptive nature of this adventure! We'll see if this exuberance lasts through April ... !!!
