Spring CSA - First Week
The squash fuzzed white, the rhutabagas ran, local eating lay bare in the hungry months. Seasons change. Farmer Vicki grows. Green houses protect. Enable crops. We get:
Winter carrots - The only keeper crop left, four carrots the size of sex toys
. Some went into yesterday's corned beef.
A head of lettuce that looks like a curly version of romaine
More lettuce in the form of mescalun mix
A kale looking like oak leaves. It took me two e-mails with Vicki to nail these down. Nibbled, they are mild enough to eat without cooking
A bag of sprouts I have no idea how to use
Brocolli raab, some with yellow flowers and some looking a lot more like arugula. I imagine they will go with pressure cooked beans
As you can see, it is enough to counter a lot of meals, but not exactly enough to make do for the entire week. So, I s'pose we'll eat out a couple of times.
