CSA loot

This year we joined a CSA, Hearty Roots Farm.  We have a vegetable share and a fruit share!  We get to pick it up every other week.  Maybe next year we’ll do every week, at least for the fruit part.  Each time I bite into the bounty is one bite closer to solving the economic, political and environmental crisis.  More on this in future post.  Enough pontificating.

The veggies:

  • japanese turnips 
  • beets
  • kale
  • lettuce
  • cukes
  • thai basil
  • yellow summer squash
  • sweet onions

The fruits:

  • blueberries
  • yellow peaches
  • pale yellow plums
The plans for the week (though we’ll see what happens – this Friday night I found myself in a sinkful of cold suds and last Sunday’s dirty dishes):
  • cucumber yogurt salad with hummus & pita
  • lemon pepper pappardelle with squash, lemon, pine nuts & herb
  • japanese turnips with parsley & lemon
  • pesto with pasta and grilled squash
  • corn chowder (leftover corn from last week’s farmer’s market)
  • Lidia’s garlic beet salad
  • borscht
  • salad with candied nuts, japanese turnip and apple
If anything turns out delicious I’ll post it.
