Local Roots CSA Week 11

Local Roots Farm CSA Week 11

In the Local Roots CSA box waiting on my front porch this afternoon I found:

  • Bunch of beets
  • Bag of arugula! Yay!
  • Bunch of tatsoi
  • Bunch of pretty purple radishes
  • Bag of mixed salad greens
  • Head of garlic
  • Several small round cucumbers
  • Bag of basil! Yay!
  • One long green cucumber
  • Two large yellow zucchini

We had a no-show at our pick-up tonight, so I’ve just shoehorned double the amount of vegetables in the photo into our refrigerator. Some of those veggies will be going to the office with me tomorrow (where several CSA members’ surplus veggies are left on the kitchen counter to be adopted), but the basil, arugula and garlic won’t be among them. Pesto, yay!

Local Roots CSA Week 10

A couple of years ago, I documented each week’s produce from our CSA with Local Roots Farm. This year, I’ve been a slacker. It’s week 10 of the CSA, and I’m taking my first photo of the vegetabliciousness that arrived on our front porch today. This week’s box contained:

  • Bunch of carrots (Yay!)
  • Couple of leeks
  • Bunch of rainbow chard
  • Bag of mixed salad greens
  • Purple “green” beans
  • Bunch of parsley
  • Red potatoes
  • One long cucumber
  • One large zucchini

I see some yummy vegetable trimmings in our chickens’ futures this week!
