Dh and I decided to take out our veggie garden this year for a couple of reasons ~ the squirrels ate everything and too many snakes. We have loads of farm stands around so we thought we would just go with that but I did a little research on CSA’s (community supported agriculture) and decided that would be a god thing for us. I finally found one that delivered close to my house ~ Clayhill Farms and decided to give it a try. I bought one share which is enough for two people and since DH is not a veggie fan, it will be plenty for us. This particular one goes for 20 weeks.
Here is what I got:
The radishes lasted about 5 minutes ~ as soon as I got in, I washed and trimmed them and DH ate them ALL. He loved them ~ said they were nice and spicy!
I gave my DD some of the squash since she was on her way to the Outer Banks for a vacation with a houseful of friends and I know she will use them up. All the rest I kept for myself.
I haven’t really decided what to do with all of it yet. I made fresh strawberry mini-muffins with the berries and that recipe will be coming up tomorrow. I’ll probably fry a part of the cabbage since I LOVE fried cabbage and I’m thinking of doing a stir-fry with the rest. I’m a potato-o-holic so it’s just a matter of finding a recipe for the potatoes and it will be easy to use up the squash as well. Look for recipes during the week!
I’m so happy with my first week ~ the quality and quantity is wonderful!!!!
No recipe today, but look for the muffin recipe tomorrow!
