CSA Share

Every Saturday I go to the farmer's market and pick up my CSA share for the week. Each week I get more and more! This is what we got this week:


  • celery
  • kale
  • basil
  • beets
  • green peppers
  • lemon cucumbers
  • baby potatoes
  • garlic
  • zucchini
  • onions
  • slicing cucumbers
  • turnips (need ideas for what to do with these!)
  • carrots
  • cabbage
  • tomatoes
  • 2 kinds of beans
I still have quite a bit of produce left over from last week! I love that it is all organically grown, picked fresh and local. It tastes much better than store bought (and in the case of brocolli - much stronger!).

Can't wait to see what we get next week!

The big purple leaf is kale! I made a big purple smoothie with that kale, beet greens (the red stems are really red), beets and blueberries (and an apple and banana).

Yum. Believe it or nit, I haven't been able to find one near me! I think it's because from farms to our house is too far and too much traffic. But I am going yo look again.
