Maple Creek Farm Share 2010

Here is a slideshow of the share produce for 2010. My thoughts on this year's share follow the slideshow.

The CSA season is over and I must admit I am not too disappointed about it.

For some reason, I found the share to be more stressful for me this year. I didn't feel in the mood every Wednesday to pick up the share, clean and store the veggies and then prep them for use during the week or to store them in the freezer for use during winter. Last year was the opposite, I felt like every Wednesday was like Christmas picking up my share.

It wasn't that I felt the quality of the share was any less than last year, because I thought it was good considering they hardly had any rain all summer.  We got A LOT of peppers, I would guess it was because it was what they had to give us considering the difficulties with rain.  The tomatoes we got this year were FANTASTIC!!  We had fun eating the many varieties we got through the season.

I am not sure if I am going to be a member of Maple Creek or any share next year for a few reasons. One, I feel like a break.  Two, I go to the farmer's market every week anyway, so I can just pick up what I really wanted there without all the stress of getting things I do not feel like cooking each week.  And Thirdly, we enlarged our garden (which we lovingly refer to as Tuscany, since it is a garden on a hill) for next year and I think we will get a decent amount of produce out of it next summer.  But time will tell, and I will be sure to let you know!

Those vegetables look so fresh in the photos. We had great tomatoes this year too! It was a good growing season for them in Michigan.
