• Community Supported Fisheries (CSF)!

    Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), as we know, is a methodical, sometimes prepaid way to buy local food grown by a local farmer.  Click here for Lou’s “Thoughts on CSA” post for the hows and the whys of a CSA.  Lou got a lot of produce, and sometimes could buy eggs from his CSA.

    BUT FISH? 

    My California cousin told me about Community Support Fishery (Thanks, Jennifer!).  I hadn’t heard of this.  She shared this link with me:  www.localcatch.orgClick here to go to its “About” page, and look around at some of the participating CSFs.  Most of the logos click through to a website.

    Here’s what was in the box this week:IMG_0551



    Sweet Potatoes


    Loose Leaf  Kale



    I’m still happy to have all these delicious root veggies coming in. Lettuce soup is in order as well.

    The kale stems will help my stock along, while the greens will be delicious all on their own.

    Carrot cake, anybody?

    I love Tuesdays. Once, when I was a teenager, some friends and I went out and bought a giant cookie-cake and had them write on it “Happy Tuesday”, just for the heck of it. We did it on a Wednesday. It was a hit. I might have to make that a tradition, except now I’d probably bake the cookie-cake myself.

    This has nothing to do with cookies or cake, however. Tuesday is my CSA pick-up day.

    Here’s what I got:IMG_0431
