Silver Lake Farms CSA: 3/26/10 pickup

29 Mar

Hello faithful readers!  Apologies for the lack of posts of late.  Travel, illness and more have been getting between me and those veggies.  We renewed our CSA, but decided to opt for the every-other-week option as our schedules are becoming even more hectic.

I’m so excited about the change in weather and all the new spring veggies that are starting to come.  Here’s what we picked up on Friday:

  • Red and golden beets
  • Celery
  • Green garlic
  • Mustard greens
  • Dandelion greens
  • Swiss chard
  • Butter lettuce
  • Chrysanthemum greens
  • Adolescent romaine
  • Arugula
  • Dill
  • Italian parsley

Oli already made a yummy salad with the butter lettuce, tossed in a light lemony dressing and some piave cheese.  Tonight, pizza!

Yummy stuff this week.  Here’s what we got:

Baby beets
Broccoli
Baby bok choi
Tat soi
Curly mustard
Green garlic
Green onion
Arugula
Stinging nettles

Excited about the nettles again – might make this soup recipe from a fellow shareholder.  I love beets too, maybe a nice arugula salad with roasted beets and goat cheese.  Already used a bunch of the green onions in the celery soup and I think pizza is a must with the dandelion greens again – something like this recipe from the NY Times.

Silver Lake CSA – Week 7

We had a nice hint at a false spring last week – warm for a few days then back to rain.  Trees around the neighborhood have started to bloom, but I’m not sure how that all effects the farm, but I’m excited about the goodies this week:

Carrots
Celery
Baby bok choy
Young red onion
Green garlic
Arugula
Tat soi
Red leaf lettuce
Curly mustard
Chicoria (dandelion greens)

There’s a yummy looking Waldorf Salad recipe on the Silver Lake Farms blog that I might attempt this week.  Other ideas:

  • Pizza
  • Creamy celery soup
  • Thai curry
