This Week's CSA Round-Up

I'm sure you're probably not as excited about this as I am, but things are starting to crank up at the CSA. The variety is getting broader, and the expectation of new foods is getting higher. And while they're not all that interesting, these posts do have a purpose. I'm trying to keep a record of what I get throughout the season to compare to future seasons. I am, after all, expecting the CSA to be a fixture in my life for as long as I'm living in this area. I couldn't possibly go back now that I've discovered the benefits.

So without further ado, here's the haul this week:

  • 1.5 lbs swiss chard (my 1/2 share plus someone's unwanted full share)
  • 1.5 lbs potatoes (white and blue)
  • 0.5 lbs carrots
  • 1 small head garlic
  • 2 heads leaf lettuce (my 1/2 share plus someone's unwanted 1/2 share)
  • 2 sprigs basil
  • 1 sprig sage
  • 1 sprig oregano
And what I can remember of last week's haul:
  • 1 bunch beets (about 3 with their greens)
  • 1 lb white potatoes
  • 0.5 lbs swiss chard
  • 2 small yellow onions
  • basil, oregano, mint
Looking forward to next week. I think the u-pick blackberries will be ready. Yum!
