CSA Farm Share Haul…see what I got!


Since my Recession Garden is out of steam for now…only have 2 squash plants and some marigolds until I plant the fall & winter veggies later this month…I thought I’d share my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) haul with you.  We paid a subscription fee last winter for a share of whatever can be grown for 20 weeks.  Each week, we pick up our box at our local food cooperative and I get excited like it’s Christmas to see what’s inside. This week’s share was awesome.

We got corn, cukes, string beans, eggplant, several different colors of peppers, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, purple cabbage, carrots and onions. Now all I have to do is come up with some great ways to eat it all! Any suggestions? I’m thinking some slaw for sure.

    Mark Bittman, columnist for the NY TImes has a great (and fast) recipe for roasted corn salad on his blog (bitten.blogs.nytimes.com). Made it last night. Add some of your peppers diced up.

    Will have to try that recipe, Shari.

    Thanks, Jamie. Will take a look.

    And I do recommend joining a CSA, Jamie and Nicole. So satisfying to know that so much of the food you eat is local.

    I usually go to the local market every weekend and was thinking about participating in CSA. Your veggies are gorgeous. Nothing like the taste and richness of local veggies!

    Sadly I have no recipes for you.. I’m more of a fruit person. But that looks beautiful!
