We received our first CSA today from Harmony Valley Farms.  We are splitting it with our good friends – the Deckers.  So this (and most pictures) will be from our half of the share.

Here is what was in it:

  • Overwintered Parsnips
  • Red Sunchokes
  • Ramps
  • Sorrel
  • Overwintered Spinach
  • Rhubarb
  • Burdock
  • Chives
  • Black Radish

From Wikipedia:

A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes the community’s farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production. CSA’s focus is usually on a system of weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables and fruit, sometimes dairy products and meat.

We are excited to see what else comes and to learn some new recipes!
