Cooking the Box: Week 1

June 21, 2022 Welcome to another CSA season! I say that so energetically, but I won’t lie that it was a little bit of a struggle to crawl out of bed at 1:45am this morning. Yes, you read that correctly, 1:45am. Every CSA Tuesday begins at 2am so that we are able to get trucks […]

Cooking the Box: Week 17

Here we are, the final delivery of the CSA season. 17 weeks of farm-fresh produce packed and delivered for you. Today’s share is filled with a variety of items. Some that can be used now and some that can be stored for use in a few weeks. Just a warning, the boxes are quite full […]

Cooking the Box: Week 16

Week 16 of 17 is here today. It’s a bittersweet time of year where we endure our final push of the season. As my alarm went off at 2:30am today, I’ll be honest that I am looking forward to sleeping in on Tuesday mornings after next week. Now, I’ll be honest, I still wake up […]

Cooking the Box: Week 15

Everything outside says fall, except the weather. Warm days are back, which brings me happiness, yet I was getting used to the cool fall mornings with sun-filled afternoons. I know the cool fall days will return, so I must be patient and enjoy what we have right now. Fingers crossed for a long, beautiful fall […]

Cooking the Box: Week 14

As I walked out to my office early this morning, I was greeted with a damp cool breeze. One that was a bit chillier than I expected. While I am looking forward to the cooler temps, I was a bit caught off guard this morning. I definitely didn’t have the right shoes on and I […]

Cooking the Box: Week 13

The temperature was a bit brisk as I walked outside at 2:30am today. As I walked into the packing shed where CSA packing had already begun, you could see the difference these cooler temperatures have made for all of our employees. Everyone is a bit more relaxed and although the hours remain long, the absence […]

Cooking the Box: Week 12

While I’m not headed back to school, the beginning of September always is a great time to reset and get back into a regular routine. Whether that is a fitness routine, meal prep and planning, or just taking some time to reorganize and declutter your home, this cooler weather has definitely helped motivate me to […]

Cooking the Box: Week 11

The final days of summer are upon us. Some people are soaking up the last few days of summer in the sun, at the cabin, or out and about preparing for the next season. Some schools have begun, with the majority starting next week. It’s that season of transition. There is something about flipping the […]

Cooking the Box: Week 10

Today’s share is full of color and flavor, that’s for sure. As we creep towards fall, we are harvesting more and more produce, giving our CSA shares a larger variety of produce each week. It’s always fun to start eating locally grown produce mid-June when it becomes available, but late August and into September is […]

Cooking the Box: Week 9

Here we are in the middle of August. I truly can’t believe how fast this summer has gone! Several of my employees this week notified me they will be leaving for school within the next few days and weeks to come….how is that possible? Each year it seems to go faster and faster, and I […]
