Week 11 of Harmony Valley Farm‘s CSA (blog) contained the following:

  • Fresh garlic
  • White cipollini or sweet Spanish onion
  • Green Savoy cabbage
  • Green Top Carrots
  • Gold beets
  • Arugula
  • Spinach
  • Green beans
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli
  • Summer squash
  • Zucchini
  • Cucumbers
  • Chard

This seems like it is our biggest box yet.  Fortunately, it is pretty much standard veggies that we’ve heard of before and pretty much know how to use.  Christy has been soliciting feedback on what to do with so many beets (we still haven’t used them from the last few weeks).  So any creative ideas are welcome!

Below is a stir-fry that was used with pretty much all CSA veggies.

Week 9 of Harmony Valley Farm‘s CSA (blog) contained the following:

  • Salad mix,
  • Green top red beets,
  • Fennel,
  • Purple scallions,
  • Fresh garlic,
  • Snow peas,
  • Strawberries,
  • Amaranth,
  • Sweetheart cabbage,
  • Romaine,
  • Spinach,
  • Basil,
  • Summer squash

We made it through a majority of last week’s vegetables. We were talking about this the other day and realized that for most of the vegetables we don’t experience their uniqueness.  Often we through a bunch of greens into a salad or some other dish that utilizes a bunch.

Last week I made a rice dish that utilized almost every vegetable that we got. I got the idea in part from the weekly newsletter (pdf) and their featured recipe a veggie stir-fry. It was delicious. The Amaranth changed the color of the rice to a slight purple.  In the rice you could taste some of the different flavors.  This is not a complete waste of veggies, but is something we are thinking about.

If we were able to have lots of time and eat every meal at home we could probably do the shares their full justice.  Sadly, this isn’t the case.

We enjoy every bite of fresh veggie goodness.

Week 7 of our CSA from Harmony Valley Farm (blog).

  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Kohlrabi
  • Spinach
  • Strawberry
  • Red radish
  • White  scallion
  • Garlic scapes
  • Salad mix
  • Napa cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Red Komatsuna

Lots of delicious vegetables again and some sweet strawberries!! Pretty exciting to taste the strawberries as we’ll be picking a lot for ourselves this weekend at the Strawberry Picking Day!!!

We ate a lot of today’s and last week’s veggies on a huge salad and then ate more on top of a pizza. Salad is an obvious way to include some of the “unknown” items into our diet.  Below is a picture of the salad.
