csa box:: week 3
Week 3! So many good things this week.
in the box:: snow peas, red raspberries, spring onions, beets, lettuce, kale/chard mix, kohlrabi, broccoli, sage, and two types of summer squash.
extras:: I only picked up beets, dill (pickling!) and lavender this week. Our lovely farmer said I should pick some of her calendula flower heads around the barn if I could use them for oil/balms, so I did!
I immediately blanched all the greens and prepped them for the freezer. I started a pot of veggie stock with all the ends and bits and stems (what Ms. Hunka our angora rabbit won't/shouldn't eat). Put in a tray of beets and garlic to roast in the oven, and baked raspberry mini-pies. YUM.
See what was in our box on week three in previous years::
