then again, maybe not

I’ve been reading about Community Supported Agriculture for quite some time. That is where you sign up to get a box of locally grown, usually organic, produce on a regular schedule. Terry and I have often thought about subscribing to a program. But we’ve found either that a given program does not serve our area, or the pickup times or locations do not fit well with our schedule.

One risk, though, is that the selection is naturally set depending on what is available and in season, and there is always the possibility of this.

    Having subscribed to such a program, I have to say, the cartoon is right on and brought me a good chuckle.

    As Marie Antoinette never said, “Let’s all eat zucchini….”

    My big tomato plants have been slow to deliver, but the two cherries (Sweet 100 and Yellow Pear) are delivering tons. And the reliable heirloom, Stupice for the third year in a row is the big hit: started pumping out ping-pong ball sized red-orange succulent tomatoes while the cherries were still deciding if they were going to grow, and now looks like a Christmas tree with a double dose of ornaments, Mmmmmmmmmmm.

    Either freeze or can the excess as-is or pre-prepared as a subassembly of a future recipe (though I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do that with caramelized onions, this year’s in-everything ingredient — Cooking Illustrated’s “easy recipe” — throw sliced onions, in a big pot, toss with butter and/or oil (I use a blend), sugar and salt and bake, covered, at 350 for an hour, stirring occasionally — works well, almost as good as the attention-demanding original). Or donate the excess to the local food bank…
