Foodshed Farms CSA: Week 3
My 3rd CSA box has been my favorite so far! It may seem a little strange to blog about each item in the box every week, but these boxes are beautiful, and I'd like to encourage everyone to support their local farmers! Plus, it's a great snapshot to see what's in season in Arkansas.
First up is a bag of herbs. There was mint, rosemary, chives, and basil.
Next up was this beautiful bunch of dino kale. It absolutely has to be my favorite kind. I can't wait to steam this up with some beans and call it dinner.
We got a stunning head of lettuce. It's going to be excellent in my lunch salads this week.
Green onions are always a good thing!
Oh happy day... it's carrot season! These lasted all of a day before they got cut up for a beautiful soup and salad that I'll show you on Friday. I love carrots, if you couldn't tell.
These two little baby summer squash were in the bottom of the box. They'll be sliced up later this week for a raw pad Thai.
I almost ate the broccoli right out of the box.
This head of cabbage looks great, too! I can't decide if I want to make coleslaw or tacos.
Lastly, I struck up a conversation with a very nice girl handing out the boxes, and she threw in some extra beets! I can't wait to roast them up and throw them on a salad.
That's the box for this week. I used a ton of ingredients for a picnic we had lately, and on Friday I'll show you guys an amazing vegan lunch using my CSA goodies.
