CSA Week 6

Yesterday was CSA day here at Howling Hill. Wolf brought home two bags of organic, local goodness. The treasure includes

  • Kale Chard
  • Blueberries
  • Potatoes (6ish)
  • Tomatoes (2)
  • Broccoli
  • Zucchini (1)
  • Summer squash (1)
  • Green onions (3)
  • Green cabbage
  • Green beans (at least a pound)
  • Red leaf lettuce
  • Sprouted Spring Grain Bread

Because of the arrival of the CSA on Wednesday Wolf and I had to change our meal planning day. We used to do it on Sunday but that didn’t work for the CSA because we didn’t know what we’d be getting. Tonight we will sit down and plan for the week.

Tonight we’re having zucchini boats. Wolf isn’t a big fan of the zucchini boats but I quite like them. He said he’d “suffer” through them since I suffered through the torte earlier this week. Along with the boats we’re having a salad as we realized we need to do this for the first few days once the new CSA comes in otherwise we end up throwing the greens to the chickens. While I don’t consider this a waste I do find it a little annoying we’re spending a ton of money on the CSA which ends up going to the egg laying machines.

    Just a quick note: There is a swap table at the CSA that allows for participants to trade one veggie for another. In yesterday’s case, I swapped the kale for some chard.

    Right, I knew that. I think.
