Roots and Shoots Farm - 8th Week of CSA Food 2012
This week we hit the half way point in our CSA season with Roots and Shoots Farm. It's week 8. If the weight of the basket is any indication, this farm appears to have reached its crescendo. Or at least is well on its way.
I continue to marvel at the beauty of the produce week after week. This is their best year of their three. The storage life exceeds what I normally experience with produce from the grocery store. It helps that what I receive in my CSA share was picked just the day before it arrives.
Thankfully there are a few dinner parties over the next week. I plan to stuff everyone to the gills! Lucky them.
How are you doing with your food basket?

[Disclaimer: Many have noticed that I write quite frequently about Roots and Shoots Farm. I have no connection to this business other than as a 3rd season CSA customer. My comments are my own. I do not do sponsored posts. Roots and Shoots Farm has never asked me to write about their farm. I did this post because I love their food. I receive nothing in return for waxing poetic about their great produce.]
