Summer 2014 CSA: Weeks 6 & 7

Morning! Time for another CSA update.

CSA Summer 2014: Turnip

Can you even handle how huge that turnip is?! We got it during week 4 or 5, and we’re STILL eating it. I don’t even love turnips that much.

Here’s what our stash has included in the past couple of weeks:

  • Week 6: Blueberries, spring onions, lettuce, squash, cucumbers, potatoes, peppers, eggplant, basil, turnips, fennel, collards, rainbow chard, dill
  • Week 7: Corn, cucumbers, squash, potatoes, spring onions, lettuce, peppers, eggplant, tatsoi, lemon balm, basil, kale, and green chard

All the deliveries are kind of starting to blend together since we usually have some ingredients that last beyond a week, and we’ve also been stopping in at the farmer’s market on the weekend to pick up anything extra (plus meat and fish). Let’s just say there is definitely not a shortage of veggies in our home! Here are some of our latest creations:

Stuffed zucchinis (probably a mix between this recipe and this recipe):
