CSA 2012: Weeks 6 & 7

Well, my two weeks of picking up the CSA share were great.  Although I do like the pick-your-own, it was kind of nice to not have any!

Week 6

 I grabbed a bunch of chives, which I used in a batch of dill butter that ended up in the freezer.

 From this choice group of 6 pieces total, I took two bunches of scallions...

 ...two bunches of fennel (a few small bulbs bunched together) and two heads of green cabbage.

 From this choice group I got two fabulous bunches of Tuscan kale, which I used for my favorite raw kale salad.

Note that the individual and family size tags are switched, so with my abbreviated attention span, I took only two zucchini instead of four.  Oh well.

Week 7

 I didn't pick my own anything this week.

 The signs were right this time, so I got my 4 pieces :)

 I got some huge heads of garlic!

 There were a lot of bugs in the corn, but I think I got some good non-buggy ears...

 From this choice group, I got one head of cabbage, one bunch of scallions, and two bunches of fresh red onions (that's the sign with the glare on it).  I picked bunches of smaller onions with the idea of putting them on the grill.

And just because I love food and pictures of food...

I hope I get to go back again soon!  Honey Brook makes my day! :)
