Adventures in My First CSA: Week 2

Just as I suspected, my bounty increased this week.  I didn't think it would happen so soon, but there was a definite increase in the amount and variety of food.

So here's what I got this week:
  • One dozen eggs
  • One quart of strawberries
  • One quart of snap peas
  • One bushel of spinach
  • One small head of romaine
  • Two bunches of shallots
  • 7 baby red potatoes
  • A handful of garlic scapes
  • A baggy of dried HOT peppers (whoa mamma!)
  • And a large stalk of some leafy green thing

No great plans for my haul yet.  I plan to wing it this week.

Chuck, that's my farmer - remembered me from last week and that gave me a down homey feeling in my tummy.

I thought Chuck said that he would send out an email update every week to tell us what we would be getting.  So far no update, hence me not knowing what one of my items is.  This hasn't been a problem so far as I am not relying on my CSA for all my produce needs.  However, I hope he starts doing so soon, so I can plan my regular grocery shopping around my weekly CSA stash.

If anyone can tell me what that thing on the left side of the picture is, I would greatly appreciate it.  There was some sand residue and it's appearance is like large green, elephant-like floppy ears with large white stalks.

CSA Out!

  1. Looks to be a bok choy.

  2. Bok choy is what I opted with as well, paired it with some lentils and orzo and it was quite delightful.
