Beautiful Bounty from the Farm

The harvest from our CSA this week was amazing... and beautiful!

And the farm itself presented some pretty nice photo ops too. 

Although we've been members of a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm ever since moving to New Hampshire, this is our first year with Nubi CSA and it has been great.  The farm is part of the Nubanusit Neighborhood and Farm that is just around the corner from us... almost in our back yard!  It is so close that we can just walk over for work sessions and pick-ups.  We weren't exactly sure how the work sessions would fit into our schedule (most are on Saturday mornings and our Saturdays can already be quite busy), but some mornings after breakfast, Paula will grab her hat and gardening gloves and join in on the farm work.  (Admittedly, Rob doesn't have much of a green thumb, so he usually takes care of things here at the B&B while Paula is at the farm.)  Lately, the farm work has involved a lot of harvesting and weeding, but earlier in the season we prepared beds for planting helped with other chores as needed.  Even the farm work has been a great experience!

Now back to this week's share... tomatoes, onions, garlic, green peppers, cilantro, etc.  With a quick trip to the market for lime and jalapenos, we had all the makings for some salsa... likely to be seen at a breakfast soon!
