Catching up with the CSA

p7231856csa1.jpgHere’s last week’s CSA box. Note the apricots and plums—just the right size for three-year-olds. I don’t quite understand how the pineapple got here. There were boxes of Dole pineapples next to a sign saying “Take a pineapple!” I did (my daughter is nutso for pineapple), but I don’t see how this fits into a CSA that’s supposed to be about locally produced food. Last time I checked, pineapple wasn’t grown anywhere near Pennsylvania.

With an imminent out-of-town trip coming up, we aren’t going to come anywhere close to eating all of this stuff. So the vast majority of this week’s box is going to my friend Beth. Fortunately, she happens to love eggplant: there are three of them this week!

    I am telling you, I think the key to weight loss is CSA. You are paying good money for this produce and you don’t want it to go to waste and it certainly doesn’t go to waist. This is such a great program!
