Flying S Farms turned out to be the perfect choice of competitors to feed me this summer; so far I have enjoyed nothing but amazing vegetables! A few foods, such as beets, garlic scapes and flying saucer squash sounded appealing since I had yet to try them. With New Years Resolutions revolving around creating new recipes (among many other goals), I am now up to my ears in new food items and dishes to experiment with. The variety in each basket continues to grow, encouraging me to learn about unique vegetables and new ways to cook items I am already familiar with. Thus, the next few blog posts will probably discuss a few of my newly discovered favorite recipes along with money saving tactics I’ve learned and developed this month.
We love to receive the weekly baskets since the food is already paid for, which helps save money on groceries during the summer season. Ultimately, purchasing local produce ties in well with my July resolutions to save more and spend out what I already have. If anyone else is participating in a CSA, what’s in your basket?
