CSA Adventure: Week 24

The vegetables, it seems, are done. We'll still be getting eggs and beef for a couple more weeks, but our produce farmer has nothing more to give us. That's understandable--if it frosts and kills your plants, there's not much you can do--but frustrating, because it means that our per-week cost was even higher than we realized. We were averaging the total over 26 weeks, not 23. Twenty-three means those dumb banana peppers were even more obnoxiously expensive.

On the bright side...we are getting double shares of beef. I don't know why, but I'm definitely not complaining--especially when you see just what beef we got today! We're also getting a dozen eggs instead of the half-dozen we've been getting all summer.

This week:
  • a dozen farm-fresh eggs
  • two pounds grass-fed ground beef
  • two large grass-fed New York strip steaks!
