First CSA Box!

Today I recieved my first CSA delivery from Farm Fresh to You in Capay Valley.

First CSA delivery!

It had lots of good stuff:
Baby Lettuce (8 oz)
Baby Fennel (1 small)
Strawberries (1 pint)
Carrots (1 bunch)
Cilantro (1 bunch)
Napa Cabbage (1 head)
Broccoli (1 bunch)
Haas Avocadoes (4)
Rhubarb (.5 lb or 2 sticks)
Italian Parsley (1 bunch)
Onions (2)
Minneola Oranges (2 lb or 6)

The newsletter was great -- it talks about our new best friend: Aphids. They've been a problem all over the place, apparently. I learned that Aphids especially like chard. My chard are barely germinating so hopefully the ladybugs will get the aphids under control before they start developing more.

Today I came across a blog review of different CSAs -- it makes me think that perhaps I need to give this one a trial and check out some others. For $29, I admit I did expect a bit more produce though they do deliver it right to my door.
