I've noticed a bunch of us are CSA subscribers and thought it'd be interesting to see what we all have in our baskets/boxes now, to see what the regional variations are. I recently started subscribing to a CSA and am having a lot of fun with it. It's definitely a different mindset for cooking, though. I used to sit down on Sat/Sun and think about the week ahead, and now I need to actually have the basket in front of me and go through it, getting inspiration for dishes I want to make with what I have.
Also curious about cost variation throughout the country. So I'll be nosy and ask and post what you will...
I'll start - we live in Temecula, CA and our CSA (CCOF organic certified) is in nearby north (inland) San Diego County. I pay $34/week for the small basket (big bushel basket) - they charge $44/week for a much larger basket. No delivery - we have a local site where we pick up.
This week I got: 4 large Hass avocados; 6 limes; 1 large head green leaf lettuce; 1 smaller baby lettuce; 4 chilis (medium jalapeno & milder pico de gallo); 5 large oranges; 6 small Asian pears; Swiss chard; large bunch mint; large bunch basil; large head bok choy; huge bag green beans; 2 cucumbers; 3 baskets cherry tomatoes (variety of sizes & colors)
