First CSA Delivery of the Spring

Tonight we got our first CSA delivery of the season.

In our basket we got-
1 large green cabbage
5 large radishes
Small bunch of greens (not sure what type, I’ll need to ask the farmer)
1 ½ lbs of new red potatoes

Because a lot of the spring greens were damaged in a hail storm we had last month, the early CSA veggies are going to be somewhat sparse. According to the farmer, the summer pickings should offset the sparseness of the spring, helping to even everything out in the long run. Like my mom always says, “It will all average out.” And I’m sure it will.

If you are interested in finding a CSA near you, or other locally grown or produced goods, check out Local Harvest. They have a searchable site that allows you to find local farmers, bakers, dairies, and more.
