Since some people asked about CSA, I posted a picture of vegetables we've been getting this fall. We get about this much vegetables every week, but it differs from farmer to farmer. This amount of vegetables is usually enough for a family of 4, but it also is a great amount for hubby and I. We tried the half share on our first year joining CSA, but we thought it was not enough for two of us.
Sometimes the vegetables from my CSA farmer can't be found easily in grocery stores. It's because my CSA farmer likes to try new varieties and likes to preserve old varieties that commercial growers wouldn't choose because those varieties need longer harvest period.
Vegetables that we get are vegetables that are in season that the farmer plants. Sometimes there is a flexibility of what greens or herbs we prefer, but overall, we get a "fixed" box full of great stuffs.
