our first basket

At long last, yesterday we were able to pick up our first CSA basket. This is just the beginning of the season, and the bounty will grow as the weeks go by. Even so, I was very pleased with what we took away this week.

Salad greens, arugula, wheatgrass, fresh eggs, rhubarb, strawberries, and fresh mint.

And...a fresh bouquet each week, too! What a lovely addition.
I am really excited to see what the summer brings!

How much is your weekly basket & is it too late to sign up?

Mindy said...

There's a large size (which we get) and a small size. I believe they end up being $21 and $14 a week. I'm not sure if it's too late...I know they do have limited spots. I'll send you a link and you can pursue it if you want. She said this week was worth $21, but some weeks in the middle of summer it's like $50 worth of stuff in a large basket (what a deal!).

Looks like lots of fun! What did you do with the wheatgrass? That's something that has always interested me when I see it in the store.

I'm not sure what to do with it besides put it in smoothies. I'm sure there are other ways to use it, though.
