We've heard the cool spring has made for slim pickins early on, so some CSAs have delayed their first delivery. Ours starts next week.
So, what are we looking forward to the most?
All the local things we can't seem to easily get our hands on because we're:
A) Late to the farmers' market. Or...
That means strawberries (we hope), bunches of baby greens and arugula, and more tiny turnips. We're also experiencing a little bit of a rhubarb obsession right now, so we're wishing for some of that, too.
Mainly we're hoping that our first CSA box will quell some of the intense jealousy we feel every time we read one of Kathryn's reports from California. Go ahead and click on the link. Those are peaches in that photo...
For those New Yorkers who have already gotten a box — or two? — let us know what's in it. For everyone else, what are you looking forward to?
