This week, my friend came with me to the farm so I could show her around and see how things are done. She'll be picking up my next share (if there is one) while I am on a fabulous vacation. It's funny because I'll only be here for a few days this week, but I still ended up taking home most of the produce. She had a bit more self-control, taking only what she thought she would use. I felt the need to snatch up whatever she wasn't taking. I probably should learn not to do this...
No PYO this week! My friend did take a bit of mint. There are a few herbs left which are unlimited picking.
Broccoli is my favorite. I took this home. (on purpose!)
I took 6 tiny hot peppers.
I got 2 Chinese/napa cabbage - Small ones, because I don't need a lot this week.
My friend took 3 heads of red lettuce. She didn't want the 4th so I found a tiny green one.
I took about 1/2 pound of the lettuce mix and I believe my friend took about the same. Maybe I should have taken a bit more...
We each took a bunch of carrots.
My friend took one tomato and I took three.
And that's a wrap! I think next week will probably be the last week of the season, and I doubt we'll participate in the "pig out" where you go into the fields and harvest whatever you want, donating a portion of it. So, it's been another great year and we've eaten a lot of tasty food. I have a lot of interesting things in the freezer for the winter and a long list of things to do with them. I think I've gotten better at the freezing and canning thing, though I've still got a ways to go. Next year I'll be even more prepared. I'm looking forward to the winter break, but will be happy when spring comes and the CSA starts up again!
