CSA & Farmer’s Market Overview Weeks 5, 6 & 7

In the past month, the farmer’s markets have gone from having almost nothing to having a bit of everything. Rather than go week by week, I’m just going to give a quick overview of what I’ve seen and bought in the past few weeks.
In my CSA box, I’ve received more garlic scapes than I could ever use (I shared a bunch), the most succulent strawberries ever (strawberry season is far too short!!), eggs of all shapes and sizes (free range brown, Americauna, etc), lettuce mix, spinach, collard greens and kale (which I cooked up with some smoked pork – yum!!), beets (which I’ve discovered I don’t like at all), broccoli, mint, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, basil, tomatoes, and more that I can’t remember at the moment. I’ve got a ton of produce in the fridge that I need to cook up today, and I’m looking forward to posting the results later.
In farmer’s market news – I’ve eaten my weight in strawberries, and picked up various and sundry stuff over the past couple of weeks, like kohlrabi, shiitake mushrooms, black raspberries, shallots, and more than I can even begin to remember. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer brings.
