First CSA Share Vegetables Pickup

My first CSA share produce pickup! It was exciting! We got a whole mess of good good veggies.

Here’s what we got (click photo for larger version)

(clockwise from left)

  1. Tatsoi (back left) – similar to bok choy
  2. Romaine Lettuce – I have never seen such a huge head of lettuce. It was gorgeous
  3. Green Leaf Lettuce
  4. Radishes (far right) – I haven’t been a fan of radishes in the past, but these were mild and so delicious. I chopped them up and added them to our salad.
  5. Zucchini
  6. Kousa Squash (similar to zucchini)
  7. Green Peas (mixture of snap peas, more) – I couldn’t stop munching on the snap peas while making dinner. I was addicted!
  8. Garlic Scapes – this will be a cool new veggie for us
  9. Beets – looking forward to the yummy beet greens. Beets are one of my all time fave veggie.

I am so looking forward to the coming weeks. But I have a feeling, we are going to be in lettuce overload very soon! Going to have to find new recipes for grilling romaine or wilting/sauteing lettuce leaves.

Tomorrow, I am going to try roasting a couple of radishes and beets! And I’ll wilt the beet and radish greens!

ETA June 17, 2010: Went back to the farm stand after work to pick up tomatoes, but ended up buying two more little bags of snap peas, cukes, and blueberries. I am soo soo soo lucky to live near such a wonderful place! Salads for everyone!!! Yahooooo!
