In our CSA box this week: kohlrabi, swiss chard, red & green head lettuce, fresh garlic, fennel, kale, peas, garlic scapes, dill.
We have so many greens between our garden and CSA, but I think it is a good thing to have enough to share! The heat has been like a furnace all week, so the greens will be slowing down just as the rest of the garden is kicking into high gear. Can't wait!

Yay! It is time. Our CSA season has started. We switched to a new farm this year. We found one a bit closer, and in the perfect location to easily combine our farm pickups so that we can get eggs, dairy, meat and veggies all in one big loop each week.
We did visit this organic farm many times last summer to get a feel for them. Last week we finally had a farm open house, and then this week our first box! I can't wait to see what we get each week - a full season from our home garden, local farms and our CSA!
In our box this week: spinach, leek, spring onions, garlic ramps, kohlrabi, radishes, strawberries, fennel, kale, cilantro and 2 types of head lettuce!
