Last Thursday was time to pick up our first box!!!!
We had lots of goodies in our box:
~notice the bonus addition... the ladybug~ :-)
Asian Green Mix
Red Leaf Lettuce
Rosemary or Oregano
So the only stinky part of this was... most items needed to be eatten within a week! Well that stinks because we don't get our next box until 2 weeks from now (actually more because we won't be able to pick it up in 2 weeks so we're getting it the next week thus twice in a row for two weeks, then back to regularly scheduled pickups, yes confusing I know)
We finished the strawberries first. Mainly because this is what was instructed in our newsletter: "Strawberries - have been slow coming because of all the rain we’ve been getting. Wetness also means they won’t keep long, so eat them all on the way home!"
Oh yeah I forgot to mention, each week our farm gives us a newsletter with information on storing and cooking each veggie, what's new on their farm, and some fun recipes to make with our CSA veggies! It's a pretty excited ordeal and we are super happy to be a part of one!!
I'm already super excited for our next box!!
We had two salad's a day for the next four days!
The Asian Green Mix that we mixed in with the lettuce and spinach was WONDERFUL! It had this unique flavor in it that I just loved, and made it so I didn't have to use any dressing (I'm not a fan of dressing anyway). Yum Yum!
This was also the first time I have ever heard of blue potatoes!!!
And they were scrum-diddly-umptious!!! We sliced them and baked them. Threw a little green garlic, scallions, and rosemary on them!!!
