CSA Week 7

I pick up my Geauga Family Farm CSA Share  in Mentor at the Hill's Family Karate  every Saturday morning.. 

This particular Saturday, it was a bit of a scramble since we had a full day planned. 
M'honey's oldest daughter, her hubby, & his niece are here visiting from Arizona and we had to go pick them up for a day tour out in Geauga County.    

 When the kids were growing up, in the fall we would take an entire Saturday, all pile in the van and head to Geauga County to several apple orchards, pumpkin patches, corn mazes & fall festivals.  We'd also stop at the Amish cheese coops for Famers Cheese cubes & beef sticks and stop road side stands too..  Its a tour that we all love & enjoy.   

Today, we mostly do the Geauga Country tours on motorcycles..  sometimes with friends, visitors,  & sometimes just M'honey & I.   Either way, we tend to stop at all of our favorite places and can spend an entire day just moseying around during the summer & fall especially.. 
  but honestly, any time is wonderful!

After we hit many of our favorite stops we went to M'honey's nieces Brittany's Graduation Party in Burton, also in Geauga County.    We enjoyed a few hours enjoying good food & great company. ♥

When we finally got home hours later,  I was able to pull out my Week 7 CSA Bag & unwrap my goodies

  This is definitely the best bag yet and Im really loving it!! 
Thanks to all the great folks who make Geauga Family Farms what it is!! 

This bag had  carrots, scallions, beets, green beans, 2 heads of broccoli, 
a nice large bunch of curled parsley,  sweet peppers, 2 containers of cherry tomatoes & 1 container of blueberries,   a very nice looking zucchini, a huge tomato that weighed 1#2.8oz, pickling cucumbers and 2 yellow squash.  
This week is going to bring some great eating.. . They're all some of my very most favorite things!! ♥
