This Week From the CSA

A and I are excited to have purchased a share in a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Farm. This means we paid a fee to the farm up front and receive a share of the harvest each week through the growing season as well as free seconds, discounts at the farm stand and a few open farm days to U-pick. A has charged me with making sure that we don't waste our CSA dollars and that we eat up all the yummies we get each week, so I'm going to be blogging about what we get and what I make with it each week. Bon apetite!

This week's bag contains and was used to make:
  • lettuce - Taco salad, mmm...
  • rhubarb - Raw Strawberry Rhubarb pie
  • strawberries - gifted to a friend
  • pinto beans - dried, on hold for later use
  • onions - saved for later use in soup
  • bok choy - didn't get to this until it was already turning; edible peices cut up for dog food
  • a calendula plant - gifted to a friend
So far, so good. Hope we get bigger bags as the summer goes on.
