I'm two weeks into my CSA and tomorrow will mark the third. If this was a battle--Junita v. The Vegetables--I'm not exactly holding my own. I am very sorry to report that the kale from the first week was my first casualty (my excuse: it had a delicate constitution, plus kale is so not a spring vegetable). My second loss was that lovely sprig of spearmint. I did, however, do very well with the asparagus (to be expected) and the turnips (a triumph!). And I learned that in order to get through a bunch of radishes, you simply must sprinkle them in every other dish you make.
Here's a peek at what the second box held:
And here is what I had for lunch later that day:
Tomorrow I'm expecting some escarole, purple scallions, sugar snap peas, fennel, arugula, and salad mix. What to do, what to do? I may go the easy route with the fennel and eat it with some orange segments and olives. The sugar snap peas will go in a quick tofu stir-fry. And wild arugula is always good as prepared above or chopped up and made into a pesto. But purple scallions? If all else fails, I'm just going to fix myself a drink.
