I know several farmers around the country and have seen many attempt CSAs, some succeeding, some failing, neither good nor bad, lots of learning. Though Iam not a farmer, I respect the efforts and risks in working dependently with Mother Nature. Farms are not grocery stores, but what ya'll have created here is such a wonderful invitation for folks that may not understand to begin to participate in local, fresh and community. I really appreciate the creativity to connect in so many ways. I also thank you for your generosity to drop our food by our house. We look forward to the next week’s offering. Thanks.
We just grilled two steaks with butter and salt and pepper. I didn’t even want to cook them, they looked and felt so fresh. Just wanted to hold them in my hands for the rest of my life. The fish monger has some magic to preserve their off-the-boat character, just like Irish and Jewish refugees landing at Ellis Island after the potato famine and the pogroms. I think I could eat them (not the Irish and Jews) once a week for the rest of my life.
I remained present during the thaw, like a great great great great grandson watching the cryogenic resurrection of his patriarch. It was exhilarating to behold the eighth inch patina of frozen salt bath fall away from skin and flesh and reveal a vibrant creature underneath. Aristotle was dead wrong to claim that a dead hand is no longer a hand. It comes back to life in its natural smell and color. I made swimming motions with it in my hands and it responded.
