Yes, it’s been a really long time since we’ve posted. As Morgan Freeman in Shawshank Redemption put it, “it seems the world went and got itself in a big damn hurry.” Needless to say, we’ve been busy. A lot has been going on and we’ll work to update the blog accordingly.
Today’s post is to celebrate that our CSA starts this week! This is our third year with the Clagget Farm CSA in Upper Marlboro, MD and we couldn’t be happier. Each week we get a set list of fresh veggies and fruits. There’s always at least one thing on the “You pick” list in case you want to pick extra and there’s a huge herb garden which you’re welcome to every week. Finally, you can pick any flowers on the farm. It’s awesome; We can’t wait for it to start and we’ve been scouring the farm blog and facebook page to find out details and see pictures of what’s been growing.
This past weekend we were out running errands and we got an email note saying that they had decided to put their strawberries on the you pick list for Saturday and Sunday only. Of course we drove straight out there! It was great to be back on the farm and we were the only ones picking when we arrived. We stayed about 30mins and left with a basket full of strawberries. When we got home we washed, capped, and weighed them… 3.75lbs!?! Awesome! Some of the first batch went towards strawberry margaritas (no mix here; we used strawberries, ice, lemon juice, tequila, and agave nectar). We left some in the fridge to snack on and froze the rest so we’d have them later on in the year. YUM!
