Last Wednesday was the first CSA pick-up for the year. We rolled out our new farm-stand pick up layout in the barn on the farm, and it was a success! As you can see on the chalk-board, the shares are very GREEN for these first couple weeks. A cool, rainy spring (almost summer now!) has meant more greens for us to enjoy. And really, we ought to feel lucky, because they’re jam packed with nutrients and antioxidants and–speaking for myself–they make me feel so fresh and energized when I eat them.
The first week’s share:
Bok Choi (Mei Qing Choi) — 1/2 lb
Spinach — 6 oz.
Arugula (Astro) — 6 oz.
Green Garlic — 2 stalks
Spring Mix — 6 oz.
Butternut Squash (Waltham) — 1 squash
Parsley — 1 bunch
Chard (Bright Lights) or Kale (Red Russian) — 1 bunch
