Household CSA Week 9 - August 16, 2017

A little late on the blog post, missed a week, but no worse for wear. Lots going down in the ICF realm! Cam and Jinhwa are nearing the ETA of a new family member, planting for the fall harvests is complete, and the soil could use some rain, giving our irrigation-anxiety a momentary pause.

But really, this is about the plants of ICF, who show up each week (with the gracious help of many hands!) to nourish our households fortunate enough to be part of this season's dance, which reminds me of a quote from Alice Walker (the first African-American woman to win a Pulitzer Prize):

“I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.”  

Perhaps the same can be said for not noticing plants in general. Consider participating in the ICF CSA as form of rapprochement!

Here are some images from this week's harvest. Of note, the intergenerational collaboration with Laval and Suho.

Nearing the end of the summer squash! A mix of courgette, butterstick and patty pan this week.
I overheard a Game of Thrones pun (source: Camil) at the CSA pick up in reference to the Dragon Tongue beans. Nicely played.
Upon unpacking the share, our family ate this week's cuke in less than 60 seconds. The intensity of the moment was concerning.
Plus some Russian red kale and Leningrad garlic!
