CSA Distribution #8

CSA Distribution #8

This week we swapped our pick-up day from Tuesday to Saturday (thanks again, Farmer Dave!) because we were out of town on our normal distribution day. I think we’ll be eating well this week!

– 3 heads of lettuce
– 1 head of cabbage
– 2 large squash
– 2 large zucchini
– 2 eggplant
– 2 green peppers
– 1 garlic clove
– 1 onion
– 1 bunch of beets
– 1/2 lb. carrots
– 3/4 lb. green beans
– 1 bunch of scallions
a whole lot of basil
– 4 dill plants (with roots)
– 3 cilantro plants (with roots)
– 20 stems of flowers

We’re going to try planting a bit of the dill and cilantro and hopefully it will take! On the menu this week: bharta, tandoori tofu, lots of salads, chocolate-beet brownies, maybe eggplant parmesan (Drew is making a sauce as I type — how could he not with the garlic, basil, and onion?). I’m going to try my hand at some lacto-fermentation and make Cortido — a Latin American sauerkraut with cabbage, onions, and carrots. I still have cabbage from last week, so I’ll use that for the Cortido and have the one we got today for slaw.

CSA Distribution #8Here’s another shot so that you can see more of the beautiful flowers! I love having the fresh flowers in the house! So much food this week… And then we get our regular share on Tuesday again!!! I will be putting together a veggie surprise package for our neighbor, thanking for allowing us to park in her driveway while ours is being paved. We certainly have plenty to share! I’m going to have to start putting up some of the veggies in the freezer (well, ones that can be frozen like the squashes).

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!

  1. I never wound up eating last week’s beets! I must have your brownie recipe… pretty please.

  2. […] Carol put the idea of beet brownies in my head when she mentioned her CSA beets were headed for dessert. I was intrigued! […]
