Yep, cute. Like this Japanese sweet potato.

Or, how about these adorable popcorn ears?

Lady Finger Popcorn

The list:
1 Head White Cauliflower
1 Bulb Fennel
1 Bunch Purple Carrots
1 Head Green Cabbage
1 Bunch Collards
1 Bunch Daikon Radishes
2 Delicata Squash
1 bunch Lady Finger Popcorn
1 Bag Japanese Sweet Potatoes
1 Head Green Romaine Lettuce
1 Bunch Cilantro

Sandy Spring CSA Week 23 2012

You will notice there is no cilantro there. And, yes, there is another cheese pumpkin. Last week I ended up making hummus as I didn’t have evaporated milk. Since there was a pumpkin in the swap box, I grabbed it and will finally make that pumpkin custard pie, now that I remembered to buy evaporated milk at Harris Teeter.

We have been eating out too many times, and the greens are piling up. I may finally have to start making smoothies. Tonight at least I stir fried some greens, the last of the bok choy and added some daikon. Chicken also. No pictures as it was pretty basic looking. Just stir fry greens, onions, garlic, ginger, water chestnuts and add shredded chicken. Sesame oil to finish. Good stuff.

I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.

  1. popcorn ears? Jealous!

  2. A Table in the Sun

    Your sweet potato is much cuter than the crazy nematode infested hairy rooted beet I dug up this week!

  3. That sweet potato looks like a duck! Hope you don’t have to attempt to peel it…that could be interesting 🙂

    Thanks for sharing and linking up! Your haul looks pretty delicious…
