Eat with the Seasons

I belong to a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm group called Spiral Path Farm, and get a box of lovely veggies, and sometimes a little fruit, each week.  I’ve been a member for about 10 years, and I joke (but I’m really serious!) that the day I pick up my box is my favorite day of the week.

Spiral Path publishes a list of what they grow and harvest each season.  They include a newsletter each week with recipes for what is in my box.  Their website is chock full of recipes for using the produce they grow.   

I am sharing a list of what grows and should be eaten in the Spring (since we are still there) and will soon share those for the Summer (so you can prepare).  I suggest finding recipes that use these items so you are ready to go after a visit to the grocery store, or even better, your local farmer’s market!

If you want to get in on the fun of a CSA, visit Spiral Path’s website.  You can purchase a summer share that begins in June and runs through October 15, or a month’s share that is any month (4 weeks) of your choice!
