CSA Distribution #6

CSA Share - Week 6

The farm shares are just getting better and better as the weeks go on! Now that the leafy spring are making way for summer veggies, I am really, really enjoying it. This week’s haul included:

2 heads of lettuce
1 bunch of Swiss Chard
1 bunch of carrots
1 bunch of scallions
1 summer squash
1 zucchini
1 kohlrabi
3 garlic scapes
1 bunch of cilantro
5 (I think) sprigs of basil
9 stems of flowers

There was also pick-your-own peas again, but it was raining and I knew this would keep us sufficiently veggied up until next week, so I passed on that. I still haven’t made the “kohl” slaw (last night was hectic after getting home from the farm), so I’ll be making that tonight. Tomorrow for lunch I’m going to make Swiss chard with chickpeas and tomatoes, getting my inspiration from this recipe. I might make some fresh rosemary bread to go with it. We’re changing our menu plan slightly and going out for 50-cent boneless wings tomorrow night, so I wanted to have a veggie-heavy lunch to balance it out. Otherwise, the veggies are pretty basic and will either be eaten raw in salads or roasted. I might make a little scape-basil pesto for something different. Some of the cilantro will go into the pico de gallo I’m making later today. And since I roasted a chicken this morning, maybe I’ll make chicken tortilla soup and use some cilantro for that. When I roasted the chicken today, I put it atop several garlic scapes that were getting a little old. Hopefully the bird picked up a little of their flavor. It sure smells delicious, at least!

  1. Ooh… I am jealous! Nothing but GREENS in sight from our CSA. I am hoping it’s a better variety this week, but I have my doubts and I may not even make pickup if they don’t let us switch to today because we want to leave town early tomorrow … we’ll see. Enjoy your veggies and flowers!! 🙂

  2. Yum! That chickpea/chard recipe looks great – I’m printing it out for next week.
