CSA: Week 20

Week 20! Can't believe it! It's been 20 freaking weeks since we started our CSA. Time flies when you're good eatin'.

We'll celebrate with some of those beautiful wax beans. The Eaton Farm's booth this past week looked like a bean and squash explosion, a very delicious explosion.

CSA: Week 19

Two weekends ago we received a buttercup squash in our share - a type of squash I've never cooked with before. Elizabeth Eaton described the taste as a little bit sweeter than a butternut. I plan on roasting it tonight with some Jamaican curry powder. We'll see how it pairs with a side of red quinoa, swiss chard, and Field Roast Italian sausage.

Looks like the blackberry lily's seeds really DO resemble a blackberry...

I'm sure a hungry starling or two is going to get tricked into "sowing" these seeds...

CSA: Week 18

Things picked up this week in our share, we've had a few sub-90s days and the plants are getting a teensy break, but still no rain.

I am really starting to love swiss chard. An exciting addition this week were some purple chinese long beans - these things look funky, but apparently you just steam/cook them like you would a green bean. Excited to try these guys out this week!
