CSA: Week 1

Week 1 of our CSA share has FINALLY arrived! I picked up our share at noon and then made quick work of washing up our produce and getting it stored away. It was so exciting to unpack the box – a few of the veggies were completely foreign to J and I, but with a bit of googling and some help from Facebook friends we eventually deciphered everything that came in our box. Here’s this week’s rundown:

CSA veggies for the week

  • Green Leaf Lettuce
  • Swiss Chard
  • Tokyo Bekana
  • Fennel
  • English Cucumbers
  • Picolino Cucumbers
  • Funky Carrots
  • Celeriac
  • Garlic Scapes
  • Strawberries


To be perfectly honest, I’m not even sure what we’re going to do with some of those, haha. BUT I’m sure trusty Google will provide us with some new and exciting recipes to try. Tonight we stuck with salads using the lettuce and naturally dug full force into the strawberries as well :)

Since I transported our goods home in cloth grocery totes, the cleaned veggies needed somewhere to be stored more permanently. I recently purchased some mesh (think lingerie bags) and linen bags to store fresh produce. They work like a charm and wash up great – not to mention they are much more eco-friendly than the plastic options at most grocery stores. We’ll be sticking with these handy reusable options when we hit up our regular stores as well.

I’ll let you know how we end up using all of these “mysterious” veggies this week! Can’t wait to get to work :)
