Skagit CSA’s

1 07 2007

What’s better than dropping in on your local Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning or Wednesday afternoon and visiting with all our local farmers and buying some fresh-picked produce? Having a weekly subscription to the same and picking up a box of goodies. It’s like Christmas every week!

Jericho Farm is using us as their guinea pig customer this year to see if a CSA is viable in the Upper Skagit area. My mother has a subscription to Hedlin Family Farm and picks up at the hospital in Anacortes every Tuesday. According to http://dnr.metrokc.gov/wlr/farms/pdf/2007CSABroch.pdf Riversong Farm also provides shares in Mount Vernon. As you visit the local markets this summer, be sure to tell our farmers if you’re interested in having a CSA share! Pre-purchasing produce and sharing in the risks of farming helps keep our local food producers working to feed us all!

The Hedlin Farms CSA is indeed a little gift every week. I am learning new recipes and what to do with produce I’ve never tried before. The tomatoes, peapods & strawberries have been the highlight so far, though. This subscription was a gift from Saxtor, but we’re in for next year, for sure.

No problem with the identity crisis. 😉 How you doing on that monster head of lettuce in last week’s Hedlin box?! Mom shared her goodies with me. It weighed about 2.5 pounds!
