CSA 2015: Weeks 3, 4 & 5

19 Jul

It’s been a while, so let’s catch up on veggies, shall we? We’ve had some favorites (woohoo for garlic scapes) and some veggies that are difficult to love. (Seriously. I am open to ideas for the fennel, people. Anything.)

CSA 2015 Week 3

Week 3 was pretty exciting. I had my first experience with Napa cabbage, which I turned into a cucumber cabbage slaw, courtesy of my go-to cookbook. We also enjoyed our first fritters of the season. We received:

  • 1 bunch of garlic scapes
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 head of Napa cabbage
  • I head of Bibb lettuce
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 summer squash
  • 1 kohlrabi
  • Broccoli
  • Sugar snap peasCSA 2015 Week 4

Week 4 was pretty exciting too. More scapes! (I made pesto, which has been great over pasta.) The zuchinni, summer squash and beet greens ended up in our favorite summer pasta.

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 bunch of garlic scapes
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 summer squash
  • 1 bunch of beets
  • sugar snap peas
  • 1 head of romanie lettuce
  • 1 bulb of fennel

CSA 2015 Week 5Week 5 is like a tale of cities: The best of times (SWEET CORN!) and the worst of times (more fennel). For the middle of summer, it felt like a rather light week, so we’ll see what week 6 brings. Here’s the scoop on week 5:

  • 4 ears of sweet corn
  • 1 bunch of garlic scapes
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 kohlrabi
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 bunch of kale

    I’ve been roasting fennel and adding to spaghetti sauce. Blended up with eggplant, squash, onion and mushroom it adds nice flavor. It can also keep, roasted and frozen, for winter spaghetti.

      Oooh, that’s a great idea. Then I won’t feel pressured to use it all at once! Thanks!
