Is it June yet?
I sent in our check for our 2013 Roxbury Farm share today. It’s a steal at $528 a season. If I did my math correctly, it averaged it to about $20 a week. You can’t beat that for high quality biodynamic, delicious food. I still have a good stock of frozen and canned green beans, parsley, basil in raw and pesto form (oh god, so much pesto), canned corn, peppers and squash.
I am so glad I learned pressure and water bath canning this year because let me tell you, it’s been really nice to have incredibly sweet and flavorful corn in our meals this week. YUM.
They haven’t come out with the meat share paperwork yet, but we’ll look into that, too. Right now we’ve been living off a semi-annual run to Costco for organic meats on the cheap. It’s good, but not great (and not as humane as I’d prefer). Nothing beats pastured meat for flavor and sustainability.
Speaking of what’s going on around the area, Oobleck is playing Friday night at Red Square with The Veins and The Big Takeover. Come on down for a funky good time!
The Village of Valatie Winter Walk is this Saturday, December 8, 2012 from 4 to 9pm, with the parade starting at 5:00 P.M. Santa will be hanging out in the Valatie Community Theater afterward.
Finally, in totally unrelated news, I’ve created a Facebook page for my blog. I’ll be posting updates to my blog there, as well as bits and blabs about food, fun, and whatever is going on around the area.
