CSA: an adventure with local food in Atlanta, Georgia

Small Farms CSA on Wordpress We are getting delicious, healthy food through our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) in Atlanta and (bonus!) supporting our local farmers.

Each week last Fall, I posted pictures and details about what we received from the Small Farms CSA (run by the Love is Love farm) in our regular 13-week session ($350 produce + $100 meat).

You can read the reports on our Fall harvests below, as well as learning more about the upcoming 17-week Spring 2011 session ($435 produce + $100 meat).

Local, organic produce share for $350 from the Small Farms CSA (Fall 2010)

A summary of the goodies that we got in our Fall/Winter share from our our local CSA (Small Farms, run by the Love is Love farm).

As Joe said, it truly was "the season of roots and greens"!

I've broken the produce out by type of vegetable and, as you can see by the total numbers at the top, we got A HUGE AMOUNT of leafy greens, roots, and vegetable fruits. I've also tried to include some of my thoughts on each item, either recipes or storage or just general reflections.
