Hi! I’m Joy, a seven-year veteran of Vollmecke’s CSA, and if you all don’t mind, I’m going to start blogging about my love, life, and relationship with the farm and all that it gives me. Vegetables, eggs, comfort, connection, and happiness all included. My very short bio is that I’m a wife of one husband, mom of two littles (Yunni: 4 and Max: 20 months), a mental health therapist to a few, and a cooker of many many vegetables.
Through my seven years enjoying the Vollmecke’s harvests, I have learned a lot, changed a lot, and cooked, frozen, and canned a lot. And as we close out this season and look ahead to winter, I am grieving the loss of tomatoes and beans and peppers and looking forward to gorging on squashes and greens and potatoes for as long as I can. Thank heavens for winter orders!
So if you don’t mind, I’ll show up on here every once in a while with some recipes, thoughts, and perspectives on CSA membership and all that it offers and requires. Until I see you here again, put some pumpkin butter with a little almond butter and honey on your toast in the morning. You’ll feel like a new a part of your soul has opened up by the end of the slice.
