CSA Week #5


Let's check out what we got in our CSA this week!

  • Summer Squash & Zucchini - they're getting bigger!!
  • Broccoli
  • Mixed Salad Greens
  • Green Onions
  • Pea Pods
  • Dill
  • Head Lettuce
  • Garlic Scapes - so so so excited about these!
  • Strawberries
  • Bibb Lettuce

Tons of new stuff this week!  I'm especially excited about these scapes!  I've never used them before, and I remember last year around this time, everybody was just all scape-crazy!  And now I can join in on that fun =)  I'll probably be stir frying them up with some shrimp and pasta... so look forward to my adventures with scapes!

Looks like a giant green squid coming atcha!
Doesn't look like we've got any other CSA pictures to add this week (Mindy's on vacation).  So hopefully some of you shy folks can send some pics in next week!  And don't forget to come back tomorrow to vote in the new dessert poll!  I'm heading up to Indianapolis this Saturday for a graduation party and I need something to bring with me!

***If you guys received a CSA this week, what did you end up getting?  I'd love to have a weekly round-up of your CSA goodies (if you participate in one), or even if you made a weekly visit to your Farmer's market (or even just picked from your own garden!) - I'd love to see the local produce everyone gets!  So feel free to e-mail a snapshot of your goods (as well as your name and blog title (and don't worry if you don't have a blog, your name will be just fine!) as well as a link to your blog) at mtlabor85 (at) yahoo (dot) com and I'll post them in next Thursday's CSA post!

  8. What a great looking basket of produce! I've always wanted to try scapes, but they have never come in my CSA box. Maybe I can find them at the farmer's market.
