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.

This week’s CSA box from Harmony Valley Farm included:

  • Red Leaf Lettuce,
  • Spinach,
  • Strawberries,
  • Scallions,
  • Garlic Scapes,
  • Sugar Snap Peas,
  • Arugula,
  • Napa or Sweetheart Cabbage, (not sure which)
  • Amaranth,
  • Summer Squash,  and
  • Chard

We definitely didn’t finish eating all of the greens from last week. Again I’ve never heard of some of these items – Chard? Amaranth?

We’ve been enjoying the strawberries that we got over the weekend.  I even made my first ever jam (and it looks like it might turn out!!) with CSA strawberries and rhubarb.  It is delicious.  I’ll write more about it later.  As our weeks ebb and flow with busyness so does the about of CSA food we are able to eat.
