To say that the soil is in good heart is to say that it is healthy, in good cultivation, & in good spirit. To say that a person is in good heart is to say that they are cultivating wisdom, courage, & good spirit. Ben & I felt that our farm name should represent our vision & we couldn’t think of a better representation of what we want to do & what we want to be in our world than In Good Heart.
Howdy do, folks? It seems I'm communicating with all of y'all via the blog and newsletters these days. I'm sad to say that I still haven't met everyone in the CSA yet, since I've been staying home studying for my prelim exam - but that's only going to be the case for another week and a half and then I'll be right there with Ben at the drop sites!
So, I did a little something different this week with the pictures of the share contents. I know a lot of CSAs use boxes and that's something we haven't really been doing. We don't use the boxes for a few reasons. The most important reason is because we prefer to keep the produce nice and cool so when you come to pick it up it's in great condition. Heat works wonders on these veggies and once they wilt, it's all over. Another reason, which will become pretty apparent once you check out these pictures, is that the produce just won't fit in one box - at least not a box with a lid on it. I took pictures of each of the items in the box and I also tried to include everything in the box, so y'all could get a nice view of what it would look like if you did get a box of your share.
So, without further adieu...
Here's the box with the contents of this week's share all together (minus the dill and cilantro - it seems I forget to take a picture of something every time!)
Strawberries (one quart for small and regular shares; 2 for large shares)
Berry close up
Kale close up
Red bibb lettuce
Green romaine lettuce
The baby leeks are on top, scallions on the bottom here.
My, that sure is pretty!
Alrighty. That's all folks! See you in a week or two. Take care and thanks for stopping by!
