CSA box :: week one!

It has begun! Today was our first CSA box of the season. I love the farm we get our share from, and just the process of going, picking up our vegetables, saying "hi" to everyone there we haven't seen since last fall, and being outside at the barn...ahhhh, I can finally feel like summer is beginning.

Today in our CSA box::

romaine lettuce, fennel, swiss chard, spring onions, fresh garlic, peas, cilantro, kohlrabi, garlic scapes, fresh flowers, and...

...a bowl full of cherries. yum.

I always pick up a few extras:: kohlrabi, parsley, cilantro, lavender, and nasturtium blossoms.

I love how the garden picks up right when our CSA shares start...I know it is the start of eating a wide variety of fresh veggies and planning meals around what has been picked (or picked up) today - love it!

Tomorrow:: recipe for garlic scape pesto!!!!

Totally looking forward to your garlic scape recipe! They had some at our FM the other day, but I didn't have a clue how to use them. The farmer said they could be used like regular garlic, but I didn't get a chance to ask him more questions because we were in a bit of a hurry. Maybe next week they'll be there still! :) And anything that ends in 'Pesto' has to be good!
