I couldn't find a thread for this year and I just picked up my first CSA bag of the season last weekend, so I thought I'd start one.
Let's compare & contrast & be envious & share recipe ideas & have some fun! Who's with me?
We started off (a bit lightly) with:
~a big 'ol canvas bag with our CSA name printed on it (I love bags, especially canvas, so I was pretty jazzed about this. It should save so many paper grocery bags they used last year.)
~purple baby bok choy
~french breakfast radishes
~oyster mushrooms (I just really love the fact that two of our farmers mainly focus on mushrooms)
So far the weather around here seems less temperamental than last year, so I'm hoping for a better harvest. Also hoping they've learned how to protect the food from deer!
We're using the pea shoots & radishes on avocado toast for breakfasts. The oyster mushrooms went into tacos last night, along with some local lettuce we picked up. The bok choy will be sauteed with garlic for a pasta side dish and the onions are going into said pasta with some asparagus.
I always wish I could afford a bigger share because I want all the fresh produce. The kale, the lettuces, more mushrooms (!), but I feel grateful that we are able to participate at all.
I'd love to see what everyone else is receiving. I'll be sharing pics of my haul, alongside too many dish/recipe pics on my Instagram in case anyone's interested: https://www.instagram.com/bluecat_forest/
