CSA Haul

I decided to sign up for the fall Ambrose Farms CSA and made my first pick up today (after lunching on a very delicious crab cake platter at the cafe).

CSA pick-up at the Stono Market turns out to be a pretty simple process. All the items are laid out for you, and coloured tags tell you how many of each item you can pick based on the share size you purchased.

This was today's haul


Seems like a pretty good haul for a 1 person share. There's zucchini and yellow squash, eggplant, a couple of sweet potatoes, a couple of jalapeno peppers, acorn, patty pan and delicati squashes, a pumpkin and popcorn on the cob. I even got a re-usable bag to carry away all my stuff in.

The zucchini and yellow squash are pretty huge. Mutant huge, at least compared to what I'm used to. I just happened to have a zucchini from Publix in the fridge that I hadn't used yet.


The Ambrose Farms zucchini is on the top. The bottom one is (obviously) the Publix zucchini.

It's going to be fun figuring out what to do with all this stuff.
