It’s exactly what we were promised. Crazy onion things. Snap Peas. Garlic SCRAPES, which are actually called garlic scapes but I read them as SCRAPES in the email today, so they will forever be scrapes to me, and our first serving of many weeks of lettuce. We already ate some salads. I made a taco salad with leftover taco fixins (morning star veggie crumbles, cheese, tomatoes, taco shell, lettuce):
It was good. Tomorrow I’m going to try my hand at some kind of stir fry with tofu, some of the asian greens, snap peas & such.
Lessons learned from the CSA so far:
- Vegetables straight out the ground be DIRTY – you really need to wash all of that shit thoroughly. I did a first pass with a fruit & vegetable wash I got from Trader Joes & a second pass in a cold water bath. Dumping the first batch of water was nasty. Make sure you wash all of your CSA noms before they go in your trap.
- Clean up your photo area before you take a picture. There’s smears on the table n shit. Almost as nasty as the pounds of dirt on the vegetables we got today. My excuse is that we have been so excited for the CSA that we stopped cleaning for months. TO NEW BEGINNINGS!
