We had a great start to the CSA season filled with lots of lettuces, beets and sugar snap peas, among many other beautiful vegetables. Swiss chard has got to be my all time favorite. During CSA season I eat it at almost every meal! No joke!
This year we are trying a new farm since we moved, so it’s been a little different routine and a little farther than we’re used to, but the vegetables are all awesome and plentiful.
The first week in June we picked up my cousin’s CSA share for him, so we got a little sneak preview of the upcoming awesome-ness in our own share: mixed greens, swiss chard, radishes, white radishes, spring onions, dill, broccoli and spinach.
Week 1: bok choy, broccoli, garlic scapes, swiss chard, kohlrabi, radishes, escarole, green leaf lettuce, red leaf lettuce
Week 2: garlic scapes, scallions, kohlrabi, broccoli, swiss chard, escarole, sugar snap peas, green leaf lettuce, red leaf lettuce
Week 3: red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, beets, sugar snap peas, fennel, scallions, kohlrabi, kale, swiss chard, parsley, strawberries
June is also a fabulous month for strawberry picking and all the strawberries, yum! We took a little adventure to Sunshine Farm in Sherborn, MA and picked a whole bunch of strawberries. We had strawberries for days!! I made a variety of smoothies, strawberry lemonade gummies, and strawberry + coconut milk pops. They were gone too fast to make strawberry shortcake with coconut whipped cream – that was next on the list.
What delicious recipes have you been making with your CSA and/or seasonal, farm-fresh veggies?
