Farm Fresh To You CSA Box – June 16, 2009

We signed up for the Farm Fresh To You CSA about two months ago, and have been less than thrilled with the results. Of the 4 deliveries we’ve gotten, the first one was sent earlier than we requested and our house-sitter reported it was mostly spoiled, the second delivery was mostly spoiled within a day, and the third one just entirely never showed up. This week was the fourth scheduled delivery. This week’s haul was notably less spoiled than the previous few weeks, so I think I will give them one more test delivery instead of immediately canceling.

Here’s what arrived:

  • 7 little white nectarines
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1 bunch chard
  • 3 heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 bunch greenleaf lettuce
  • 6 lipstick peppers – 1 was spoiled
  • 5 tiny red onions – 4 of them are questionable/possibly spoiled

The lettuce, some peppers, and tomatoes will become a big salad tonight. I’ll give Farm Fresh one more shot, mostly because the newsletter apologized for sending everyone crappy spoiled produce and said they’ll try harder. We shall see. I really want to support you, local organic farmers, but I’m not paying high prices for food that I would pass by if I saw it at Safeway.
