Summer CSA 2016: Week 13

This week, another family was on vacation, so C & C got their veggie share and we took the whole half of the other veggie share – plus some watermelon and a nectarine from the other family’s fruit share. We got: 1 cantaloupe, 6 ears of corn, 3 tomatoes, a handful of blue potatoes, 2 onions, 3 skinny cucumbers (that I thought were zucchinis), 1 summer squash, and some exceptionally hot (according to the farmer) jalapeños.

Winter CSA 2015-2016: Week 20

This week, we received: a half cabbage, some green onions, a half bag of sorrel, two types of lettuce, two sweet potatoes, and some mint.

We had some lettuce salads and some baked sweet potato chips. I gave the mint to a friend who likes to drink infused waters.

I made a modified version of Green Shchi, a Russian soup with cabbage and sorrel. I added our green onions, two potatoes, a clove of garlic, half of a yellow onion, and some chicken sausage.
