Week 27 of Harmony Valley Farm‘s CSA (blog) contained the following:

  • Garlic,
  • Red & Yellow onions,
  • Sweet potatoes,
  • Cipollini onions,
  • Parsnip,
  • Beauty heart radish,
  • Scarlet turnip,

We have two more regular deliveries and we signed up for an extended season of four deliveries in January and February of mostly root veggies.  We also got notice that the 2010 signups have started.  We’ll probably sign up again.  Maybe after a year of experience we’ll be better able to handle all of the vegetables as they come in!

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.

We received our first CSA today from Harmony Valley Farms.  We are splitting it with our good friends – the Deckers.  So this (and most pictures) will be from our half of the share.

Here is what was in it:

  • Overwintered Parsnips
  • Red Sunchokes
  • Ramps
  • Sorrel
  • Overwintered Spinach
  • Rhubarb
  • Burdock
  • Chives
  • Black Radish

From Wikipedia:

A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes the community’s farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production. CSA’s focus is usually on a system of weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables and fruit, sometimes dairy products and meat.

We are excited to see what else comes and to learn some new recipes!
