Four Weeks and Counting….

…. until our first CSA pick-up.  Alycia and I have visions of passing out on the front lawn after eating all the lettuce and other early summer vegetables from the basket.  Personally, I can’t wait.

This is the official blog of Elyse, Alycia, Carolyn, Kim, Tom, Jeff, Tionna, and Bethy as we explore the wonderful world of Community Supported Agriculture.  All of us have purchased a share in a CSA and, starting in early June, will be picking up an average of 10 pounds of freshly picked vegetables each week from a local farm.  We don’t know what we will get each week, but that’s part of the adventure!  Sort of like Iron Chef!

How I picked the name:

I found a vegetable love song.  Here are the lyrics:
THE VEGETABLE SONG
(Music & Lyrics by Bob Mitchell)
(Spoken)
Ladies and gentleman, as far as I know there’s never been a love song written for those courageous
hard working tillers of the soil that feed our Nation. To those down to earth beings this song is
dedicated.

I’ve a got a garden in my heart
That Mushrooms with love
Whenever you Turnip

So nothing Maters to me
If it’s Okra with you
Lettuce never Squash our love

And how I Radish
The thought of Beans with you
And how my Artichoke skips a beet

Nothing Maters to me
If it’s Okra with you
Lettuce never Squash our love

(Instrumental section)

(Spoken)
It’s just an old fashioned Vegetable Song folks comin’ down in two beet harmony

It takes Parsley you and Parsley me
To make Asparagus
So if Cucumber to me my Melon Collard baby
I’ll Carrot your heart

And how I’ll Radish
The thought of beans with you
And how my Artichoke skips a beet

Nothing Maters to me
If it’s Okra with you
Lettuce never Squash our love
Lettuce never Squash our love
