spring CSA, week 10

Technology is failing me tonight. First, our cable (and hence our internet access) was out for most of this evening, and then when it finally came back, I encountered technical difficulties getting pictures off my phone. I’ll add pics into this post when I can get them onto the computer.

In the meantime, you’ll just have to believe me when I say that this week’s CSA pickup contained spinach, mixed greens, eggplant, carrots, cucumber, mushrooms, apples, oranges, and the usual bread and eggs. The mushrooms are from PA, eggplant and oranges are from FL, the spinach is from New Jersey, and the carrots are (astoundingly) from cold storage up in Maine. I don’t know why they’re from Maine. We can’t possibly have run out of cold storage carrots in Maryland.

I also bought a pint of maple yogurt. The farm just started carrying fresh yogurt from grass-fed cows, out of Cedar Hill Farm in Darlington, MD. I had a bit of yogurt for breakfast today, topped with some granola. The yogurt is fantastic, sweet and just slightly tangy. It’s runnier than the yogurt you get from the stores, but the taste is just fresher. I love it. At $5/pint it’s pretty pricey, I think, but since yogurt is only an occasional indulgence for me, I don’t mind paying premium prices every now and then.

I took a picture of the yogurt container, too, with its adorable cow label, but you’ll just have to wait to see that.

Edit: technology and I are finally friends again. Here are the pictures of the CSA pickup and the yogurt.
