We usually pack our CSA shares into 5/9 bushel boxes which are about the size of a large grocery bag. When we get into the thick of teh season we change to a 3/4 bushel box. The contents vary with the time of the season. Typically we can’t get into the fields until the middle of April. If we have transplants ready to go that day nothing will be ready until the middle of May. More likely we start harvesting in late May or early June depending on the weather.
Early season crops will be salad and cooking greens, radishes, spring turnips, corn meal and dry beans ( harvested last fall ). Summer will bring cucumbers and zucchini, kohlrabi, peas (they have been hard to get lately), beans, new potatoes, broccoli (another tough one lately), melons, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant. In the fall you will see potatoes, winter squash, turnips, spinach, carrots, beets, cabbage, broccoli, and shell beans
A couple years ago one of our members took pictures of the contents of each weekly box and posted them on the web. You can see them at http://www.flickr.com/photos/splatgirl/sets/72157605844866688/. Thanks Lara. I have not compared them to the lists below for accuracy.
Week 1 to 6
Week 7 to 12
