Yesterday we delivered our first boxes to our nine CSA customers. The boxes contained:
Shunkyo Radishes: A spicy semi-long radish with hot pink skin
Baby Pac Choi (AKA Bok Choi): 2 heads each of Red Choi (purple leaf) and Black Summer (deep green leaf)
Large bunch of scallions: Green onions –Copra (the more yellow and strong flavored ones) and Alissa Craig Exhibition (milder and white).
Spicy Salad Mix: A mix of buttercrunch, oakleaf, Bibb/Romaine cross, and Deer Tongue lettuces, accented with lacinato kale, tat soi, baby spinach, and some red mustard to add a little bit of heat.
And for those who purchased the additional eggs from our grass fed chickens, those were also added into the box.
We’d love to hear what people did with their food this week. We actually used the first three ingredients last night in a delicious spicy/sweet cole slaw made with mayonnaise, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper. Feel free to leave any recipes or ideas in the comments until we get our recipe board up and running.
We hope to see the boxes get more and more full as what’s in the ground continues to mature. You can expect to see more of the same, but with new additions each week. Coming up soon are swiss chard, kale, head lettuce, peas, mustard, and new varieties of radish. Soon after that we’ll have turnips, carrots, basil, kohl rabi, fennel, beets and then cucumbers and summer squash.
