I searched and only found this thread for 2011, so I don't think there's one for this year yet??

Anywho, I finally joined a CSA and I'm so excited! We picked up our first goodies yesterday... green onions, spinach and chard. Can't wait for the bounty to pick up!

mine doesn't start for a few more weeks, but I am filling out my form and getting excited. We have an optional extra share of fresh homemade tempeh (Barry's Tempeh, for fellow NYC-ers) that I am completely hooked on. This stuff is so good! It's spoiled me, too. Store bought tempeh just isn't the same.

Besides the tempeh, the thing I'm most looking forward to is garlic scapes. YUM.

WOAH! Which CSA do you use, doncherryfan? I haven't been able to find a good CSA for me in NYC as of yet. Nothing close enough to our apartment that wouldn't require me lugging a box home on the subway every week. :-(

Flatbush farm share: http://flatbushfarmshare.wordpress.com/


We're pretty forking awesome! Besides the veggie base share, you can sign up for shares of fruit, coffee, wine, tempeh, and then some other non vegan things (yogurt, eggs, and cheese). We have a sliding scale of pricing for the fruits and veggies, too.

Ooh, thanks for the reminder! We are moving to a new city in May and where we live is surrounded by farms. I will excitedly look into it!

I still have a credit with my CSA from the past two years here, but I had a really negative experience with the farm's owner and wouldn't dream of giving him money again (when there are alternative CSAs around).

Wow, that sounds amazing! I've gotta find something in Manhattan, I'm tired of not being on the CSA wagon!

Picked up my box today!
strawberries
grape tomatoes
oranges EDIT: murcotts
red potatoes
swiss chard
lettuce
celery

Next Friday's box will probably be very similar.
Once I get my next paycheck, I'll be getting a Tuesday box from another CSA as well!

I signed up for one this year, but I won't get my first box until May probably. I'm excited to see if I get produce I've never tried.

I love our CSA! They give us so much yummy produce for the best deal in town.

This week we got bok choy, chard, kale, spinach, clementines, pears, navel oranges, parsley, green onion, carrots, and broccoli.

I just have to figure out what to do with a HUGE bunch of parsley...

Our farm had a little open house event this weekend. They have two big hoop houses where they've started a bunch of seeds already. We got another small bag of curly leaf spinach, (bib?) Lettuce and green onions.

Just signed up for our CSA - first time for our family! We're way too excited for a box of vegetables. What I really like about this one is that its set up like a farmer's market, so you get to pick out your veggies. They tell you what your box should contain at the end, but if you want to trade out your beets for more carrots (ahem, me.) you can do so. It doesn't start until mid-June though.

Mustard greens, carrots, green onions and chives. Next week is our first "real" pick up, so I'm looking forward to a bigger bag!

Lettuce, spinach, green onions, radishes... I am loving roots and dirt still attached to my veggies. A salad spinner has proven to be a great investment!

Mine won't start until the beginning of June. Very excited. It is a three farm collective that is teaming with another farm this year for a few extra things and will start the season off with asparagus!! Can't wait. This will be my third year with it, splitting with a friend.

I'm always jealous of people getting CSA's, but I garden and can barely eat all that I harvest, so it would be entirely silly! I love love the idea though.

We signed up last-minute for one that starts the first week of June! I've never done a CSA before so I'm pretty stoked.
