This weekend we got our first spring CSA (or Community-Supported Agriculture) through Maryland Table. Since it’s the first week of available produce, it was a fairly small share and the manager gave us some eggs to make up for the small quantity. As we get closer to summer, the shares should have more variety and quantity because more crops will have become ripe and in season.
I love this way of supporting small, local farmers and especially because it forces me to try produce that I normally wouldn’t pick up at the super market! Do any of you guys subscribe to a CSA or use farmer’s markets?? I especially miss the Charlotte Tailgate Farmer’s Market, but Annapolis has been increasing their local produce availability lately!
Here’s a little peek at some of the fabulous things we got!
Everything was SO delicious, and I ended up roasting the carrots and Jerusalem artichokes with some chickpeas and rosemary and put them over the Mixed Baby Greens we received in the share as well! Topped with some TJ’s Parmesean Ranch Dressing…mmm!
Crossfit was a killer! Here was yesterday’s workout:
- 800m Row on Rowing Machine
- 3 rounds of: 21 Situps, 21 pushups
- 200m Sprint Run x 3
- 2 Muscle Ups (see video) or Tricep Dips (or assisted progression)….I did tricep dips on parallel bars. Don’t quite have the muscle ups yet!
- 4 Handstand Pushups (or progression)…I did 30″ decline pushups
- 8 Kettle Bell swings
