CSA: Week 12
One of the cool things about being part of a coop rather than a straight CSA is that the members staff the depot on pickup day. Everyone is asked to do 2 hours of volunteer work a season, whether that is staffing the depot, writing for the newsletter, or other volunteer jobs that come up. Nicole worked her second shift at the depot today, and Carl came over to help clean up and take down the ez-ups.
A bonus for those volunteers who stay until the end is that often, there is some leftovers, from people who did not take items, people who didn’t pick up their shares, or the food bank, who take many of the leftover veggies, but not all.
Today’s Share, Pre-extras
corn, zucchini, kale, apples, tomatoes, peaches, raspberries, plums, peppers, and marinated feta.

More corn, more kale, which the food pantry won’t take, one extra container of raspberries, and a whole pile of heirloom tomatoes. The kale and some of the tomatoes will be delivered to friends tomorrow.
The Co-Op has also recently started a flower share, with a bouquet a week. The Coordinator, Melissa, had one extra this week, which she thrust at Nicole, saying, “Congrats Newlyweds!” They are very pretty in our spare wine glass.
