Farm Tuesdays

Each Tuesday since the end of May I have been making a trip to the local farm, where we joined a CSA this year. I wasn't sure how I was going to like being at the mercy of the farm for my veggies, or being tied to a schedule of 4-7pm on Tuesday evenings to pick up my produce. I am happy to report that I love it!

Each week is an adventure. I never know whether I'll get to pick 4 items or 5. Last week I could pick 6 items and I really had difficulty choosing. Hmm... don't need onions, got some last week. Should I get more zucchini? or maybe cucumbers?

The farm has forced my out of my comfort zone of making the same things over and over, and I've had the opportunity to try some veggies for the first time. The farm has also given me a never-ending supply of still life to practice my photography -- and that (of course) I have to share with you. Here's a sample of what I picked up last week, taken with my new 60mm macro lens:

And -- the best part -- the blueberries were ready for picking:

I wonder what I'll be able to bring home this week...
