Farm share week 3

Sorry for the delay in getting this week's list up... I always think summer is going to be relaxing and then it always ends up being way more busy than the rest of the year.  Too many projects...

In this week's share:
  • lettuce (Boston this week, not greenleaf): 1 lb
  • turnips: 1.25 lbs
  • bok choi: 0.75 lb
  • scallions: 0.5 lb
  • rainbow chard: 1 lb
  • grape tomatoes: 1 pint
  • blueberries: 1 pint
As soon as I picked up this week's box, I thought that it felt a lot lighter, and according to the tally above, it is short of the 10 pounds they estimate for each week's share of this size. This is one of the drawbacks of CSA membership -- like buying shares in a company, the "value" can go up or down depending on the relative success of the farm. They even include this information in the agreement you have to sign when you sign up for a share. So, I guess this week was a slower week on the farm.  (They didn't say as much in this week's newsletter, although they did acknowledge that there was a lot of rain.)

What we got does look really good:
