I'm very excited!!!
We recently signed up with Local Eats, an interesting variation on the CSA(Community Supported Agriculture) concept. While there are traditional CSA's within driving distance, we just aren't able to commit to traveling off-Island to pick up our share every week, but Local Eats works with local farmers and will deliver our basket to one of the local ferries for us to pick up on arrival on the Island - although Ann Marie did say it felt rather like putting an infant on the boat unattended!
Last week we received our first basket:
A dozen eggs
Several types of Lettuce
A Bouquet of Flowers
We've been eating very well, lots of salads, a spinach and white bean soup, a couple of frittatas, black pepper pasta with arugula, buttermilk rhubarb cake and a fabulous rhubarb and raisin relish.
Really looking forward to tomorrow's delivery!
