The Sign of the Four

weekly CSA produce share
Notice how the amounts of greens start to decrease as we head into late spring and early summer. Growing food, not surprisingly, is seasonal.

It seems as if every item in the CSA share this week came in  fours. Since there are only two of us, this is perfect. After all, four oranges means that we can each have an orange for two days in a row. It just makes it elementary, Watson. So, this week, our share had:

  • Valencia oranges (4)
  • Gold onions (4)
  • Artichokes (4)
  • New potatoes (4)
  • Kale (1 bunch)
  • Salad mix (1 bag)
  • Swiss chard (1 bag)
  • Carrots (1 bunch) — as always, the tops went to the chickens
