Some Red With My Green!

This week, we are seeing a touch more color in our CSA share! That’s how you know that summer is getting into full swing here in the Northeast. I am going out of town for the holiday weekend tomorrow, but will be back with lots of catching up next week. Who knows, I might even post a bit from the road!

Today, when I picked up our share, I utilized a nifty feature of Farmer Dave’s CSA share that I hadn’t before: the swap box. Even though the shares come prepackaged, each week there is a box where you can swap things out of your share for something different. Since I still haven’t managed to use the Chinese cabbage or tatsoi (though I’m planning to tomorrow), I swapped out this week’s bok choy with an extra bag of spinach. I’m more used to cooking with spinach and it is so incredibly delicious at this time of year!

Here’s what our box looked like after the swap:

We got two bags of spinach, a head of Romaine lettuce, a bag of peas, and…

…radishes, more garlic scapes (!), and…

…a cippolini onion and rainbow chard.

I have some fun cooking in my future. I hope you have a wonderful long weekend!
