CSA Box June 11th

So sorry about not posting last week's CSA box. The pictures didn't turn out very good and we learned a valuable lesson about taking photos outside vs. inside. This week we started getting more summery vegetables and the twinadoes ate kohlrabi for the first time. They have dubbed them "crabby radishes" in part because they can't pronounce kohlrabi and also because they have the crunch of a radish and I guess they do kind of look like crabs to a preschooler who doesn't know any differently. So, this week we got a head of red leaf lettuce, 2 heads of green kohlrabi and one purple kohlrabi, spinach, french breakfast radishes (which we are going to serve raw with butter and sea salt on french bread), purple scallions, garlic scapes, yukina savoy, asparagus, rhubarb, and arugula. We've been very committed to buying our eggs, milk, and meat each week at the Saint Paul Farmer's Market and we've had nothing but great experiences and great food as a result.

  1. I'm jealous that your kids are eating such adventurous veggies (kohlrabi! asparagus!), my kids will not touch any of the HVF produce yet. But just wait till we get strawberries, they'll eat some then...

    Nice blog, I'm looking forward to reading more!
