CSA Week 1

On Friday afternoon, I picked up my very first CSA box! A couple of months ago, I signed up for a 25 week share of veggies from a local organic farm - and I have been (impatiently) waiting for the spring season to begin. I thought this would be a fun (?) weekly blog feature, so here goes! In this week's box was:

Spinach...
Pea shoots...
Shiitake mushrooms...
Green onions...
...and salad greens.
Doesn't everything look beautiful? There is nothing like fresh veggies straight from the farm. So far, I have made pea shoots sauteed with olive oil, garlic and vinegar, wilted spinach with mushrooms, a big beautiful green salad with caramelized mushrooms, and sauteed spinach with garlic and golden raisins.

I will be picking up my veggie box every Friday afternoon - cannot wait to see what I get next!

Yum. We're thinking about this ourselves. We just picked up info at the farmer's market this weekend and need to look into it tonight. Since we are planning on making our own baby food, it would be nice to have lots of veggies and fruits on hand. Plus, I love that it supports local growers and local economies!!

Super-gorgeous. Nom nom nom. Pictures of what you made with it too, please?

I have thought about joining a CSA but have always stopped myself because hubs is super-picky about veggies. Maybe I should just force him to like it!
