I got my 1st CSA Box today from Greenling.
Do you subscribe to a CSA (community supported agriculture) service?
Today was my 1st experience and so far so good! I received an email last week from my friend, Christy, with the opportunity to try a box for free. Free? Sign me up! I went online Sunday and got my box today! It was delivered around 2 pm with cold packs inside to keep my booty cool until I got home from work.
It was like Christmas! For once, I was excited to make dinner on a weeknight!
In my box:
Sweet potato greens
I like that Greenling lists the produce in order of shortest to longest shelf life. They also tell you which farms the items came from. They include some recipes in the box with more recipes on their website. They also have a picture identifying each item on the website. (I totally had to check to see what persimmons looked like!)
Tonight, I immediately went for the pears. I decided on a simple lettuce salad with sliced pears and pumpkin seeds.
I also see some zucchini bread & persimmons margaritas in my future!
