Buying Local: Week 9 & 3rd CSA

Instead of hauling our box home this week, I brought a large canvas bag to transfer my produce into. This way I did not have to take the box back to the farmers market on Wednesday, I just left it with them to reuse again.

That will have to be my new routine because I am no longer going to be working from home anymore (I got a new job!) and can’t just pop over to the Wednesday market whenever I feel like it.

Although that is a bummer, I am excited to pack my lunches again and see what I can do with our produce.

What We Bought  (From CSA box):

  • Red Beets
  • Fennel
  • Baby Carrots
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Head lettuce
  • Spigareillo
  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • White onions
  • Raspberries
  • Tart cherries
  • Oberweis milk from family farms around IL and WI
  • Turano bread from Berwyn, IL

What We Learned:

  • K and I both like cherries!
  • We did not eat last weeks radishes fast enough, so into the compost bucket, they went…
  • So far two of my friends (outside of my enviro group of friends) have started composting! I am so thrilled!
