CSA - Week 2

Since it has been so hot, and was still really hot overnight last night, I set my alarm for 2am so I could go grab the produce from the hot porch and keep it cool. The box was completely full, which surprised me after the heat wave we had.

Unfortunately, there will be no more arugula this Spring, since the heat caused it to flower. No arugula goat cheese pizza for me!

(Un)fortunately, we did get two huge bundles of mustard greens, so my mom and I each get a whole one. I have yet to cook them in a way that I like, but I am determined to keep trying! If I can get my kids to eat them, I'll be both thrilled and shocked. Keep in mind that I do share this with my mom, so I keep half of what is listed and pictured. Here is the breakdown:

French Breakfast Radish - 1 lb 2.8 oz
Purple-Top Turnips - 1 lb 12.8 oz
Yellow Scallions - 6.2 oz (4 scallions)
Mustard Greens - 2 lb 6.9 oz
Mizuna - 14.4 oz

Recipes to follow!

  1. I'm looking forward to reading what you make with this stuff! I'm nervous I won' t know what to do!
    My CSA starts Tuesday. Does yours only have veggies or fruit too?
