Today was our second week participating in the CSA program City Fresh here in Lakewood, Ohio. Above is a picture of the single share that we picked up this afternoon. It was a beautiful day so we rode to the library on our bikes where we picked up our produce. Our single share fits perfectly in my new bike basket which consisted of one bunch each of mint, radishes, garlic scapes, bokchoy, and green onions plus a pint of strawberries (my favorite) and 8 oz of maple syrup. Since we have a TON of mint growing in our back yard we traded it at the barter table for an extra bunch of garlic scapes. Apparently, a lot of other people are growing mint too, as 99% of the barter table had little baggies of mint on it. For more information on CSA programs, City Fresh and LEAF, check out this post.
As a reminder, there’s a lot of great stuff going on the next few days at Crafty Goodness including Drop In And Craft tomorrow (Thursday), Craftapalooza on Friday, and the Ears to You Earring Benefit on Saturday. Click on the links for more details.
