CSA week 9

CSA week 9 2020 from Dancing Meadows Homestead brings us strawberries! Tiny sweet flavorful strawberries – they won’t last long, because we’ll eat them right away. We have the last of the peas today, too. The weather forecast calls for a week or more of really hot weather – and peas hate

CSA week 8

CSA week 8 2020 from Dancing Meadows Homestead brings more garlic scapes, hooray! I can’t get enough of them. They’re delicious in so many preparations – and how can anyone fail to smile at the twisty curly things? Of course our distribution is still green. This is, after all, still quite

CSA season begins: my week 7

CSA week 7 2020 is both the 7th week of CSA produce for me and the 1st week of the full CSA season. I participated in the 6-week “pre-season” from Dancing Meadows Homestead because I was so eager for fresh green veggies. And I haven’t been disappointed, not at all! This

CSA week 6: asparagus, herbs and radishes

CSA week 6 2020: still green. That’s not a bad thing at all; the lettuce is impeccably crisp and fresh, and we’re loving the asparagus. We’ll see more colorful crops soon enough, I’m thinking, and once it’s truly hot and sticky, we’ll long for cool crisp greens again. Naturally we’ll have

CSA week 5: still green!

Finally, warm weather! We went from a long cool wet spring right into early summer, according to the thermometer. I’m expecting to see some different crops in a week or so, but this week, CSA week 5 2020 gives us a box that’s very green. When I have the goodies in

CSA week 4: spinach & other greens

Today we fetched our goodies from the farm. In CSA week 4 2020, our box gives us a double-sized bowl of spinach! It’s all green this week, typical for early season stuff. There’s asparagus, as well – we’re certainly not tired of asparagus yet! When you join a CSA, your

CSA week 3: more asparagus!

CSA week 3 2020 brings us more asparagus, which makes me very happy. Asparagus season – the time to get the really fresh stuff grown locally – is all too short, in my opinion.  This week we’ll feast on asparagus. Would you like an excellent, easy, and totally amazing center-of-the-table dish

CSA week 2: cool wet spring

Spring, hereabouts, is not very spring-like so far, or perhaps it’s just going to be a late spring. The forsythia are blooming, and the daffodils are just up – but it’s been cool so far, and fairly wet. CSA week 2 2020 has  brought us cool-weather produce. Our farmers at Dancing Meadows

CSA week 1: the season begins!

Here in SE Michigan, we’ve just begun the season for local produce. Think that’s late? Where I live, the frost free date is May 29 – so I count myself lucky to get local produce any time in May. This year we’ve joined a CSA from Dancing Meadows Homestead in Cottrellville,
