I have to say my first Spring and Summer in New York has been amazing so far. Everything is green and alive (quite unlike Southern California). Sure, this week was HOT (in the 90s with thick humidity) but then the rain came and everything sort of reset. The thunderstorm yesterday was the biggest I’d ever witnessed. I bet our tomatoes and chard on the fire escape garden loved it.
Recently, we signed up for the Bushwick Food Co-op CSA and now, each week, we get to pick up farm fresh eggs, veggies, fruit and flowers. Our first share was overflowing with strawberries so we had to put them to quick use. We ate kale and eggs on toast with fresh strawberries on the side for a couple breakfasts in a row. Leah also baked a really tasty Strawberry Rhubarb crisp to finish off the berries before they could go bad.
