No, I haven't been watching too much Rachael Ray. But I did get our first share from the CSA I learned about at the race last weekend. We're doing week to week right now, since our schedule gets wonky, but I'm pretty impressed for a $25 investment! I love that everything is in season (the strawberries were grown in a "solar tunnel" - whatever that is) and I love that it comes from 45 minutes away. Aaand, we're supporting a local, 3 generation family farm.

Boo ya. I'm like, citizen of the year. Saving the planet, and the farm industry all with one box of yumminess.

We got:
Butternut Squash
Sweet potatoes
Beets (NO clue what to do with them)
Turnip greens
some turnipy thing (again, no clue)
Giant thing of cabbage (ideas?)
Pecans (BONUS!)
Spring onions

I am SO excited to try some new foods and new recipies. (again - please, please help me figure out what to do with this stuff.)


  1. Oh my goodness I'm SOOO jealous you have CSA already! I love beets. Amy Lawson has a great CSA blog w/ splendid ideas for all those veggies..Also very funny!

  2. Very cool! I'm thinking about doing something similar this year.
