CSA Week #9

It's that time of the week again.  CSA Thursday!  Let's check out what we got this week...

  • Emiko Cabbage (similar to Napa Cabbage)
  • Sweet Onions
  • Blueberries
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Cucumbers
  • Kale
  • Garlic
  • Fennel 
  • Tomatoes
First tomatoes of the season!  They're plump and juicy - and I'm sure they're absolutely delicious!

Now let's check out some of our fellow bloggers' stash...

Lori from Fake Food Free sent in her garden haul.  She got all these beautiful goodies from her father's garden in Newburgh, Indiana!  Her dad has one serious green thumb - I just wish one of these years my garden produce would be as beautiful as all of this!  Be sure to check out Lori's blog for an awesome grilled green bean recipe!

Blackberries, raspberries, gooseberries, green beans, yellow squash, potatoes and kale.

And Lyn from Life Lyn Style is back with 2 CSAs!

Lyn's Tuesday share included: tomatoes, strawberries, green onions, cherry tomatoes, romaine lettuce, red leaf lettuce, yellow squash, zucchini, kohlrabi, carrots, and radishes!  Whoa that's a ton!

And Lyn's Thursday pickup from Fresh Fork CSA
  Thanks again Lori and Lyn for joining in the CSA round-up this week!  Everybody got some great stuff and I can't wait to see what you all come up with for your goodies! 

I know I'll be experimenting with unique slaws - I've been in a slaw mood lately!  So be sure to check back to see if I come up with anything crazy.

Anyway, I'm off for a run (I'm still at it - yay! I've got a consistent 9:13 mile, so I've shaved off 20 seconds from last week already - score!)  Be back tomorrow with something tasty - and a treat poll! 

***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!  


  1. Peggy! Congrats. 20sec off of a mile in one week is HUGE. How much distance do you usually run? I've been getting a bit faster, but haven't some trouble upping the mileage.. Something to work towards though!

    Be sure to share your CSA recipes, I always need new ideas. :-D

  2. This is fun seeing what everyone's CSA baskets contain. Thanks for showing them off. I'll be looking for that slaw!

  3. Wow! You are BOOKING it! Just the thought of blueberries make me happy.

  4. Raspberries, them!

  5. Very nice fresh veggies! I was curious what's Emiko's cabbage and even Googled it. =P I wondered if she invented this veggie... very nice collection!

  6. I wish you can sent me some of the beautiful blueberries and strawberries. Blueberries cost a fortune and strawberries are the ones with the sweet taste that we get at Malaysia.

  7. Your CSA is on par with what's in my farmers market right now. Great haul!

  8. I am SO jealous. All of these fruits and veggies are so vibrant and GORGEOUS!

  9. I really should sign up for a CSA. What a great incentive to eat healthier.

  10. Hi Peggy. So pleased to have met you! I'm going to make a note to send you a photo of next week's CSA box. I'd love to participate in your roundup. What a great idea!

  11. Looks like a great CSA week all around :)

    I'm going to join one next year, but for now I'm just mismatching produce from a few different farmer's markets.
