As I sit in the Raleigh airport in North Carolina, indefinitely, thanks to storms near Philadelphia, the countdown is on. In about 72 hours, I will be in the midst of a dual-settlement day, selling our condo in the morning and purchasing our house in the afternoon, hoping the efficiency of wired money serves its purpose (pretty please).
This post will be brief (and without a colorful picture) but I wanted to provide a follow-up to my CSA pick-up locale drama. V and I decided our best option is Wednesdays at a church in Old City, close to her home and about two miles from my office. With pick-up hours from noon to 7pm, she could grab the goods while the twins were at camp and then she and I could arrange to meet to split the share at some point during the work day.
Here’s what was in our full share for Week 3:
- walla walla sweet onions
- sugar snap peas
- Chinese cabbage
- gourmet lettuce mix
- green beans
- garlic scapes
Admittedly, many of these items are still in the refrigerator. Between packing, dining out, and work, my culinary exploits have been close to null. I’m hoping that I can salvage this produce to prepare in our new kitchen– it will surely be a true testament to farm-fresh food… how long does it really last and can it survive a night in a cooler? The drama of eating local continues. Stay tuned!
