We first joined the CSA exactly two years ago with what’s called a “winter share”. We moved to an apartment in Brooklyn and took advantage of the great food community out here. The winter share consisted of primarily root vegetables, eggs, and some cold-hardy greens, such as kale, collards, and the like. I remember how much fun it was. We were getting vegetables that we had never eaten before and it was all in-tune with the season. I had literally never given a second thought to what was fresh at a particular time of year. Growing up in New Mexico, I only knew that around October it was green chile season and the whole city would smell like a roasted chile. Other than that I was pretty happy getting whatever I felt like getting at the supermarket whenever I wanted it.
Now that it’s over I’ll miss it, but I’ll never forget it.
