CSA, Week 6

This week was a very interesting week and a major score vegetable-wise. There won’t be a picture this week, most likely, as everything is already in the fridge. Wednesday we worked the “closing” shift at the CSA pickup and then we had to spirit the veggies home, stash them in the fridge and head off to dinner. My “class” at work met at Telluride for dinner to celebrate our 5th anniversary. Good food, good drinks and a good time was had by all. It was really enjoyable to talk with everyone since we’re all working on different things and don’t necessarily see each other very often.
Back to the CSA. Working closing is cool because you get to take 2 extra veggies (if there are extras). We got double portions of potatoes and spinach, which is fantastic. Here’s this week’s haul:
Red Sails Lettuce-2 heads
Dill-1 bunch
Summer Squash-1 qt mix of pattypan and zucchini
Perpetual Spinach-1 bunch
New Red Potatoes-1 quart basket or 2 pounds (x2)
Scallions-1 bunch
Fennel-1 head
Escarole-2 heads
Lemon Cucumbers-1 pt
Red Lake Currants-Certified Organic-1 basket (I got 3.. there was a bunch of extra. I’m going to try and make a currant buckle)
Regional Blue Berries-1 pint basket
Sweet Cherries-1 bag
