My quality control inspectors check out this week's CSA share
This week's gorgeous organic CSA share included, clockwise from left, red beets and tops, mint [which Bossa Nova loves; I gave her a leaf of her own], broccoli, 2 large bunches of garlic scapes, rainbow chard, red butter lettuce, fresh onions with the tops attached, and a bag of fresh baby salad greens. I am now an official CSA addict. I'm eating an astonishing variety of fresh, locally grown produce. Not only is it healthy and environmentally friendly, but it's inspiring me to get creative and try new recipes. Wish I had opted in for the fruit and flower share, too!
