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.
