allandale farm csa, the final week

I can’t believe our CSA is over!!  It was an awesome experience and I loved picking up our produce at the farm each week, but…it was a pretty annoying drive to and from each week.

To me, it was worth it because we received fresh, locally grown produce each week and we were able to create meals and recipes from those.  I used to look through my cookbooks and decide what we were going to make during the week, then buy everything that I needed.  But, by just winging it instead, we have saved so much money!  Instead of just picking up what we need for a certain meal, we created a meal with what we had.  We used more pantry items and created delicious, simple dinners that would fit into anyone’s budget.

I’m sad to see it end, but hopefully we’ll find one closer next year!

Most items that we received this week will last for weeks ahead, such as squashes, onions and garlic.

Apples

Mesclun Mix

allandale farm csa, week 13

Technically it is week 16 or 17, but we have missed a few weeks do to being away and just being busy.  So, this was our week 13. 🙂

I am still loving our CSA, but I don’t love how it takes me some extra time to pick it up from the farm.  Something closer would definitely be better.  Oh well, fresh, local veggies are worth it to me.

And, fresh these were.  The green beans were unbelievable!  By far the best we have had.  YUM!
