I just picked up my last box of the season – the infamous no. 24. It’s bittersweet. On one hand, I will miss the anticipation, planning our meals for the week based on the contents, figuring out what to do with some of the trickier ingredients. I will miss not having to go to the grocery store as much and I will certainly miss the taste and quality of fresh, organic produce straight from a local farm.
On the other hand, a full CSA share box for two people is a lot to contend with. It takes planning, discipline and a lot of cooking. Don’t misunderstand – we love being shareholders (we already signed up for 2008). But it’s hard work with great rewards: now I really know what “in season” means, I truly understand the connection between the weather and crops, I’ve broadened my cooking to include ingredients that I never would have on my own.
So what is the plan for 24 boxes “off-season”? I definitely plan on continuing to post. I will have more flexibility in terms of what I can post (not limited only to box ingredients!) and I will be posting more “Book ’n Cooks” as I work through my ever-expanding cookbook collection.
Thank you for reading and following 24 boxes and I hope that you will continue to read throughout the next six months until the next 24 boxes begin.
