CSA Week Two!

June 19, 2012

Here’s my basket:

And here is everything spread out:

2 baby bok choy
2 broccoli heads
2 red lettuce
savoy cabbage
kale
scallions
basil

ETA: escarole!!  I got that, too!!

Honestly, I could have crammed my basket fuller, but we still haven’t eaten everything from week one!!   I felt more relaxed picking out the veggies this week.  LPK helped himself to the broom and no one seemed to mind a little boy sweeping out the shed.  Some of the old-timers introduced themselves to me and we got to talk a bit about what we planned on doing with our vegetables and, of course, my boys. Another reason I love my CSA: they actively encourage people to stand around a talk and get to know each other.  Maybe other CSAs do it, too.  It’s very much in the spirit of community agriculture.

    What do you do with bok choy? And how does it taste?

    I am incredibly envious of your basil! We could eat pesto for breakfast, lunch, and dinner around here 🙂

    Share any new recipes you discover/create! I am always looking for new ways to get veggies into my hubby!

      We love Bok Choy!!! It is so scrumptious– I just use it in simple stir frys served over brown rice.

      Please send me your pesto recipe!! I don’t know what to do with my basil!!
