What I’m Doing With My CSA Shares: Week 22

This is the final week! We're going to miss our fresh veggies over the winter. We signed up for a Winter CSA through Farm Bridge, so we won't be totally out in the cold.

What we got in our final Peace and Carrots 2017 share: Potatoes - I combined these with some of the parsley from last week and made…

What I Did With My CSA Shares: Weeks 15-20

I've been a slacker and let six weeks of CSA posts stack up.

Kale - We chopped up the kale and combined it with week 4’s rainbow chard and sautéed it all up with bacon,…

As I wrote about earlier this year, I love being a part of a CSA. Figuring out what to do with the shares each week is a fun little puzzle. This year I'm going to write about what I plan to do with the weekly shares. Here is what we got this first week and what I plan on doing with it: Radishes We love radishes. We'll put some in a salad with the romaine, slice them on tacos, or quick pickle them. Romaine Lettuce We'll use some of this…
