Nothing to do with vegetables, but look at those GREEN eyes! My Bea Arthur is something special.


I mentioned before that my first impressions of our CSA was the strong community of people involved. I got to see this first hand this week! I’m so grateful that the coordinator of the program was willing to meet me this morning after I got back from LA to hand over the bag. So…good news! I still got my blue bag!! With Corn!

In the bag:

2 Cucumbers

1 summer squash

1 big, 1 small zucchini

2 ears of corn (!!)

New Potatoes

Lots of carrots




2 tomatoes!!

Wow! I’m so glad my awesome little sister is coming this weekend to help me eat up all of these veggies. She did not get the super taster gene and so she is really looking forward to trying these local goodies.

As you can see from the pic…summer is definitely here!!

Week 6!

In the bag:

2 summer squash

3 zucchini -2 little 1 huge

Bunch of Basil


Head of garlic

4 cucumbers

2 sweet onions

1 bulb of fennel

I actually didn’t mean to cover up the fennel with the little zucchini. I think it was my subconscious trying to save me from it. Right now its all bagged up and headed to best bud’s kitchen. Maybe next time, fennel, maybe next time.

I’m planning some chard bread, fridge pickles and a squash/pesto thing from the CSA newsletter.  Good thing, since I made more pesto last night!

I would be completely amiss if I didn’t mention another strange eater that lives with me, my kitty, Alcy. She is 7 years old and has had this habit since she was a kitten. I almost said tiny kitten, but this baby was never tiny. The doctor actually said that she was only fat shelter kitten she had ever seen. Ha!

This sweet kitty hides a horrible secret. Like I am a super taster, Alcy is a wool-sucker. And it sucks, literally. She eats ANYTHING on the floor made of almost any material. Pillow corners, sheets, blankets, sweaters, socks. Its gross. The only good thing is that we must keep our house clean! We have to warn guests when they come over because she will go straight for their jackets if not hung up. I don’t have a lot examples any more because we’ve become so good at keeping stuff out of her little mouth.

Tank top that she had for about two seconds. I can hear it happening, so stopped it pretty quickly. And this blanket is another example.

In her 7 years she has never gotten sick from it. I hope it stays that way!

The Story

I'm skeptical of vegetables and joined a CSA to see if I can make friends with them. This blog exists so that I can hold myself accountable to eating what I paid for and document what I can do with lots of local produce!
