I joined a Community Supported Agriculture co-operative at the beginning of the summer. It was part of my grand scheme to eat more and varied vegetables. Today was pickup #3. I took the two previous pickups before my trip to Wyoming.
I really enjoy the co-op owners. They call themselves Farmer John and the Garden Goddess, and they are always very happy to see me when I show up with my canvas bag. Today it was raining when I got there. I had expected the water to keep people away, but it was as busy as ever at the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market.
Here’s what I got today.
Please forgive the obsessive list making. I’m interested to know what I end up with at the end of the season. (and hopefully have eaten all or most of it by then.)
#1 – 1 dozen eggs
#2 – 1 bunch of radishes (they were variegated, and very pretty. Tragically my camera is broken!)
#3 – 1 cabbage
#4 – 1 kohlrabi#5 – 1 bunch of arugula
#6 – 1 head of Bibb lettuce
#7 – 1 bunch of spicy mustard greens
#8 – 1 bunch of curly kale
#9 – 4 onions
#10 – 1 oddly shaped zucchini and 1 small yellow squash
#11 – flowers for my “wife” or “girlfriend”
