Today I paid for a winter share at the CSA. We did this last year and the onions, potatoes, carrots beets, parsnips etc. lasted until the Spring. This year they have a Thanksgiving share, so I signed up for what I wanted. I signed up for a turkey (organic, local), some wild, organic cranberries, some local maple syrup, and a 'cheese' share, which will be cheese from a local maker who uses Appleton Farms milk. I didn't sign up for pies, although they sounded divine, but I can make pies from local stuff.
I"m excited to think of all this local food, but it's still hot out and I'm kind of reluctant to think about winter coming.
