however, we got some good stuff…


  • carrots
  • parsnips
  • garlic
  • kale, yes, the ubiquitous farmshare kale
  • red leaf lettuce
  • pumpkin
  • butternut squash
  • red cabbage
  • celeriac
  • turnips

We made Pasta with Greens, Olives and Feta for lunch.  (Yes, the title of the recipe is wrong on gourmet.com.)  We have so many vegetables we had to start getting rid of them asap!

A couple changes: 

  • used whole wheat rotelli instead of the penne
  • I think we had less greens. ¬†Used broccoli rabe because that was what we had
  • We only had a handful of olives. ¬†Would have been better with a bunch though.
  • Added mushrooms – sauteed with a little of the garlic parsley lemon peel mixture. ¬†Added more garlic.
  • Added red pepper flakes to taste.

It was pretty good!

  • potatoes
  • spring mix
  • winter squash
  • japanese eggplant
  • broccoli rabe
  • parsley
  • butter lettuce
  • daikon radish
  • cabbage



  • apples (3 kinds. ¬†One is a russet which reminds me a lot of tree apples I picked as a child from some neighborhood tree. ¬†I can’t remember the details but the taste is so familiar!)

Because we had our work detail today, we got to take hecka leftovers.  Which means we have like 10 japanese eggplants, 10 lbs of potatoes, like 5 lbs of spring greens, etc.  We should totally have a party.
