I had to work at the bakery, then drive straight to school to run a parade rehearsal, so Mike was in charge of picking up this week’s share. I was excited to come home in the evening to a box of produce on my counter, to sort through, bag up, and ponder. There were a few different things this week, but the majority is still green – not that I mind!
- basil – approx. 2 cups
- Russian kale – 1 head – big leaves, reddish (last week’s was curly kale)
- radishes – 4 small, little ones – at least now I know what they look like so I know when to harvest them in my garden
- head lettuce
- swiss chard
- kohlrabi – 1 bulb, purple
- garlic scapes – yeah buddy!!!!!
I have decided to start keeping a list on my fridge of all the CSA produce we get, in an attempt to do our best to make sure we don’t waste any, which I admittedly have a habit of doing. I do have some good ideas, though, for a few of these vegetables, so that helps already!
My parents & younger brother will be coming in for a visit at the end of the week and will be staying for a few days, so my goal is to be able to use these ingredients while still entertaining them. I don’t think it will be too difficult 🙂
Question of the Day: Have you tried garlic scapes? What do you think of them?
