Here's what we have to look forward to this week:
Yes, it's the return of the actual box! The box comes home with us when we forget to bring our bag with us.
Here's the green garlic:
I really love the flavor of the green garlic! Very light, perfect for spring. We got a recipe in our CSA newsletter this week for garlic bread, using the green garlic. It sounds divine! We might have to try it.
These are the tokyo turnips:
They look really tasty! I think I might roast them? I forgot that turnips and radishes aren't the same thing. These are petite - they look almost like large, albino radishes.
And here's the sage - how fabulous! The flowers are so pretty. This was such a neat addition to the box because we've been planning what to do with the flowerbeds in our yard, and I am very attracted to all the different types of sage, with their lovely purple flowers. Maybe it's a sign?
Lots of greens this week! Arugula, spinach, salad mix. Interestingly, I actually find myself craving healthy food more often now. It could be the convergence of adding more vegetables to our diet (more consistently) with my stepped-up running routine. But whatever it is, I'm happy about the change. I definitely wasn't on a garbage diet before we started the CSA, but we ate out more frequently, and when we did it was just as often Dos Coyotes (good, but it shouldn't be a weekly habit!) as it was Jack's (big salads!).
I saw flowers for sale at our local food co-op today - and they were from our farm, Full Belly Farm! I felt a little burst of pride. We have to make our way out there at some point to acquaint ourselves with the farm.Here's to a delicious and nutritious week!
