June 2016 CSA Wrap-Up

csa week 3d

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.

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.

June 2015 CSA Wrap-Up

Hi friends and happy summer! We are finally on summer vacation after a very long school year. Our last day was Friday, June 26th! Brendan and I celebrated after his last baseball game on Saturday with our first trip to Dairy Joy. Brendan was glad to get a chocolate soft serve with chocolate sprinkles and whipped cream. I, of course, still on my Whole60, had cherries. 😉

Another CSA season from Wilson Farm is upon us, and per usual, we are super excited for our weekly pick-ups. Who can blame us? Fresh veggies + supporting our local farm every week = total awesome-ness. We are also participating in the fish share again this year and get freshly caught fish every other week. So far this month, we have had lots of lettuce, beets, and radishes, and we can’t forget the amazing local strawberries too. Every meal we include some form of beautiful greens, such as spinach, swiss chard, escarole and kale, sometimes sautéed in a little coconut oil, sometimes raw, both ways equally delicious.

This week  I was excited to pick up some local strawberries, which I knew they would have. I could barely control myself when I got home – they were so delicious. Braden agreed and quickly jumped in his chair to join in on the strawberry yumminess.

The beet greens this week are so beautiful. Last night I chopped them up and sautéed them with a little coconut oil and had them with my eggs this morning. I also tried boiling them, slicing them and serving them with a little olive oil.

CSA season is so awesome because most nights, my dinner plate looks so beautiful. This is such a simple weeknight dinner, but it’s so pretty! Arugula topped with radishes and lemon juice and a grass-fed bison burger.

I am looking forward to many more weeks of awesome-ness from our CSA. Stay tuned.
