As in too many sources of what came into the house today.
Friends and Farms. Lancaster Farm Fresh. Foraged asparagus. Harvested spring garlic and garlic scapes.
Is it any wonder I get overwhelmed. At least I didn’t pick veggies at Larriland today.
Scapes and spring garlic. Let’s start with the back yard. I have 18 plants out there. Two, I found to be waterlogged and a loss. Four I harvested today. They were too small to become heads of garlic. Hence, spring garlic. With a couple of scapes in the mix.
Asparagus. A couple more spears of my wild asparagus. There are two more ready to be harvested in a day or two. Not bad, but this year much less than previous years.
Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative CSA. This is week three of the spring/summer CSA. I have a half share. Today eight items plus my weekly chicken share.
Red leaf lettuce
A whole chicken this week. A Freedom Ranger heritage chicken.
The chard already made it into tonight’s frittata.
As for Friends and Farms.
This week was my eggs and yogurt week in the rotation. Proteins included chicken breast and a pork chop (destined to become an Asian element of a stir fry).
Green cabbage and carrots. There will be cole slaw.
That’s because we had a pork butt a few weeks back that is happily becoming pulled pork compliments of 100 days.
The rest of the basket included Asian greens, broccoli, scallions, hydroponic tomatoes, strawberries, and sweet potatoes.
I like getting small amounts of varied vegetables.
This method of shopping has been interesting, and a challenge to boot. Some days the large amount of greens is intimidating but it’s good for us.
