csa day.

today rick put together the first csa farm shares!  we live on two acres and have a house, several outbuildings, goats, pigs, chickens, swampy useless area, and driveway so the actual garden space isn't acres and acres like we wish.  
but anyway rick decided to offer up a couple of farm shares to help us along.  we have one person getting a full share and two half shares.  this week in our first basket of the season we had baby swiss chard, spinach, tatsoi, radishes, arugula, and since everyone opted for the eggs as well...there were eggs!  plus rick made a sweet little newsletter to let everyone know what was what and a suggestion or two for eating!!  
oh and yes, of course rick made the lovely boxes that we are putting the shares into for pickup!  i think it looked wonderful.

  2. Congratulations Pennie. It does look wonderful! I would be so excited if my csa share came in a pretty little handmade crate. I also think it's wonderful that even though you have a swampy area, he hee,you are still offering up a few shares of fresh homegrown goodness.
