CSA Share 2012: week 4
Even though the strawberries are out of the picture
Here are 4 reasons why I am SUPER DUPER EXCITED about this weeks share.
#1 Broccoli and Cauliflower-- We planted broccoli in the csa field 2 years ago, and got nothing, nada, zilch. This spring I got the urge to try growing these cruciferous veggies again. I tried to be optimistic, but I really was anticipating another flop. Just look at those beauties! Yummy, yummy!
#2 Spinach-- Spinach is another on of those things that we have been trying to grow with little success for the past few years. Last years spinach I got from a neighbor. This year I am proud to announce that this was grown on our farm right next to the turnips. We leads me to #3
#3 Turnips-- I love that part of the whole CSA experience is trying new things. Turnips fall in the "new things" category for many of our members. I have this Turnip souffle recipe that will knock your socks off. Sidenote*** You can eat the turnip greens too! These are the most beautiful turnip greens I have seen in a while!
#4 Pickle Cucs-- I love pickles I eat them right out of the field and so does Auggie Dog
Oh yeah, the asparagus and kholrabi is pretty cool too!
