It has been a while since we blogged about our CSA, but don’t worry.  We are more in love than ever with Farmers Fresh CSA!  I am especially in love with all of the fruit that we have been receiving.  This week definitely blew me away.  Here is what we got:

  • Honeydew melon Correction: It’s called a sprite melon.  (Isn’t it cute??)
  • Watermelon
  • Cantaloupe
  • Hydroponic lettuce
  • Oyster mushrooms
  • Yellow squash
  • Corn
  • Blueberries
  • Potatoes

Please note that we will not be posting another delivery for 2 weeks due to travel and other various life happenings.  I just graduated with my Ph.D. this past weekend and our 1 year wedding anniversary is around the corner so we’ll be taking a much needed celebratory vacation.

This week’s CSA delivery contained a few new items:

  • Strawberries
  • Cabbage
  • Spinach
  • Lettuce
  • Onions (Aren’t they cute??)
  • Herbs
  • Sugar Snap Peas (Yummy!)
