Week Six from Sandy Spring. Another huge haul. Too big for the picture again.
Here is the official list at pick up.
I swapped the green cabbage. I am using most of last week’s to make sauerkraut, and some for cole slaw with the lovely carrots we got this week. I picked a second bag of these precious sweeties. I ended up with a dozen miniature white cucumbers. This variety is very sweet. We loved them last year. This year I am making sweet pickles with them.
The carrots and onions were gorgeous. Who knew you could get excited over vegetables?
And, this green oak leaf lettuce. Yum! I was eating it while rinsing and spinning it. It is such a great tasting lettuce.
Now, the dandelion greens and kale. I need to get creative this week. Might be steaming and freezing to use in soups this winter. As for the analysis.
Kale $2.50. Chard $3 for this size. Three pounds potatoes $4.50. A dozen cukes $6 at 2/$1 the going price at the market last week, and these are more exotic. Carrots $2. Onions $3. Dandelion greens $2. Lettuces $3 each for these two varieties. Scallions $2. Zucchini $3. These prices reflect organic pricing, and not the cheapest prices for veggies found that aren’t organic. Total for the twelve items, $34. Running total for six weeks. $48.65 ahead of what we pay for the CSA.
On a closing note, as I drove down through Dayton on the way to pick up in Columbia, I spied the bunny by the old general store and post office. He sums it up perfectly.
