We share a full share of a CSA membership with both sets of grandparents, so each week we get half of the box and one set of grandparents gets the other half. We’re almost to week 3, so I figured I’d write a smidge on how we’ve been doing so far. Week one we received “farmer’s choice”, which included multiple types of lettuce, chard, and spinach. Week two we picked radishes, arugula, garlic scapes x2, and red butter lettuce.
So far, we’ve sautéed both the chard and the spinach, grilled some of the scapes, and had multiple salads with the lettuce and radishes. Not only have we actually been eating the CSA veggies, I’ve been keeping up with proper veggie storage (so the lettuce isn’t getting wilted or mushy, for example).
I’m looking forward to the next 20 weeks of veggies, and hopefully being as on top of using them all as I’ve been so far. Maybe my children will even eat some of the veggies, too (though I’m not holding my breath on that one).
