The first box

We got our first box of produce from our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), Bluebird Gardens, yesterday–we were so excited!

We decided to get a bigger share than we did last year, as we found that we did not have a problem eating all the produce, so this year we’re sharing a “family share” with my sister and her family.

Yesterday was our first box of the season (we get about 20) and it was a lot bigger than we were expecting.  This is just our half of the box.

CSA produce

We got a couple different kinds of lettuces, pea shoots, spinach, radishes, cucumber, green onions, and kohlrabi.  I cleaned all the produce and made a huge salad out of most of it–basically all I’ve got left is a couple of onions and that huge half a kohlrabi.  But I have plans for that. . . I found a recipe for creamed kohlrabi (of course!) that I’m going to try when I get back from a work trip on Friday.

I’m so excited for the season of wonderful produce! :)

    Pea shoots, that’s what those are…what do you do with them? I must get the recipe for creamed kohlrabi, I was just planning on cutting it up and putting it in a stir fry, ended up giving it to my son to explore what to do with it. So glad you referred me, though I think we may need to get a family share as well. What would I do without all your advice!

      I just put the pea shoots in with the salad I made–they are good that way. I think kohlrabi would be good in stir fry–that sounds like a great idea! Really you can do that with a LOT of vegetables. It is fun to experiment with things you’ve never eaten before, I think! :)

    I am looking forward to getting my box tomorrow. Last year was my first year of CSA and I really enjoyed it.

      Same for us–we were afraid we wouldn’t be able to eat all the produce but we didn’t have any problems with that. 😉
