Most CSA's I had seen pre-packaged all the loose greens for you.
Not ours. Cuz I didn't pay attention.
So my one huge canvas bag ended up being a layered mess of spinach and spring greens and arugula interspersed with the whole/bundled goods. As such, I did not pick much of the PYO because I was worried it would get lost in the bag. I also didn't take photos of the haul cuz quite frankly, I had "a day" and was nearly in tears separating everything out of the bag at home. You try telling 3+ lbs of leaves to not co-mingle!!
first haul:First meal:
spring greens (1lb)
arugula (~1/4 lb)
bok choi (1 head)
scallions (1 bunch)
radishes (1 bunch)
white beets (1 bunch)
kale (28 stalks)
butter lettuce (1 head)
pick your own:
Spinach (sauteed in oil, honey, garlic, smoked paprika, aleppo pepper, and balsamic vinegar)
with fish sticks (don't ask)
(cooked/shared with with our CSA buddy, Purple Pregger Monkey)
Bok Choi (blanched, with stir-fried garlic, hot peppers, & CSA scallions, with coconut lime dressing)
Lettuce Wraps (filled with chicken thighs, mushrooms, CSA scallions, and other asian ingredients)
The only bad thing about the CSA, that I can come up with so far, is that I have absolutely NO motivation to do my own gardening again, ever :) With such selection, grown by experts, and keeping me out of the heat...
Why didn't I do this sooner!?
