We got our first share from our CSA Avalon Acres today, and I’ve been giddy like schoolgirl in anticipation all week.  We were supposed to start getting shares last week…but, well, we all know what happened there.

I was shocked we got our eggs since they lost over 1200 of their 1600 chickens in the flood.  They’ve done an amazing job of getting back to business very quickly, and as good fortunes go, their crops all survived – Yay!

So what’s in my little box of goodness you ask?  TWO nice punnets of strawberries (Thing 2’s fave), spinach, lettuce, baby bok choy, scallions, broccoli, a half dozen fresh eggs and a sprig of mint.  Can’t WAIT for next week.  The freshness and tenderness of everything we’ve eaten so far is SO fan-tabulous!

Here…let me show you the farm strawberry next to the one from Publix…..

I don’t need to tell you which is which.

Yes….it DOES taste as good as it looks, and YES,  it’s so much better.  I will cry when it’s over…..
