What an exciting day at our local CSA, Kompot. I wrote about them before and am very excited by how successful this first year is. To be honest, I wasn’t sure I was going to get my money’s worth from joining. They had no track record and the land had not been farmed in this way before. But look what we got today:


And potatoes, carrots, summer savory, garlic, onions and (thankfully!) the last of the savoy cabbage.

But even if we weren’t getting so much veg, they are doing great work, building community, preserving the rural landscape and character of our villages and so much more.  Check out their website. Better yet, if you are local, sign up for the veggie box, visit the garden and come on out and join in the fun! This Saturday is a work party and I am sure you will meet interesting people and have some great food.

Tonight’s menu from the box

carrot soup

salad with kohlrabi, cucumber and lettuce

swiss chard sautéed with garlic and then mixed with ricotta cheese

beans and savory

gooseberry coffee cake (our gooseberries!)
