1) Vegetable garden! While I was in London, boyfriend was productive. One thing he did was erect the structure for our hanging tomato plants and make little planter boxes for our cucumbers and strawberries. I should leave more often.
2) Next up is the latest share from our CSA. CSA stands for Community-Supported Agriculture. Community members pledge an amount of money to a farm and receive a share of the produce once a week until the amount has been fulfilled. This means that every Wednesday we covertly “steal” food from a random residential garage and have amazingly fresh (sandy) and tasty vegetables for the week. Our specific CSA is this one: PCSA. Getting the food is a bit like Geocaching (you know something nobody else knows) and eating it reduces grocery store-induced stress. :) We’re in the fourth week right now. Previous weeks’ shares have featured organic free-range blah blah blah amazing brown eggs, baby and adult asian greens, salad greens, radishes, turnips, corn meal, and wheat flour. This week there was supposed to be a pickling cucumber in there too, but I didn’t see it unless it was pickling cucumber greens because there were some odd greens in with the asian greens.
This is what we got last week: a head of green lettuce, a head of red lettuce, green onions, radishes, and a bunch of spinach.
Needless to say, I’ve eaten lots of salads lately.
3) Oh yeah, and Spike has grown, Moe has shrunk. You can see Moe if you look closely on the left.
