Yes, we seem to have survived greens season, and even though our email said FIVE MORE zucchini, thankfully, they lied.
There was only one.
What did we get? The list is below. I swapped cilantro for what looks like white wonder cucumbers, ten of them to use in salads and to pickle.
1 Bag Rattlesnake Beans
1 Bag Green Beans
1 Bag Jalapeno Peppers
1 Green Zucchini
1 Bag Purple Viking Potatoes
1 Bag Fennel Bulbs
1 Bag White Garlic
3 Slicing Cucumbers
1 Bunch Thumbelina French Heirloom Carrots
1 Bunch Red Radishes
1 Bunch Cilantro
5 Ears Sweet Corn
We also got our first five ears of corn for the year. One big one, and four smaller ears, that will be grilled tomorrow night. The rattlesnake beans are new to me, as are purple viking potatoes. The carrots are getting bigger, too.
This week I know with twelve items we will be far ahead again on value. I really need to hit the market tomorrow before deciding what the savings are, as some of these items are new.
As for what I did to use up most of last week’s haul, I made Use Up the CSA Stew the other night, and also made couscous salad, and a potato salad. The salads are going with me to the Conservancy tonight.
There are potatoes, onions, carrots, kale, chard, beet greens, carrot tops, garlic and a couple of farmer’s market tomatoes in the pot. A little chicken stock for liquid. Herbs from my garden. Topped it off with some Boarman’s short ribs. Let it cook for eight hours. It ended up looking like this.
The short ribs fell off the bone. No need for a knife. Served with an Allegro Merlot.
