Roots and Shoots Farm - 3rd week of CSA Food

Tonight was our pickup night again for the Roots and Shoots Farm's CSA food. This was their week #3. We participate with a half share every other week so this was just our second food offering. The colours alone get me. We have an exciting week ahead of trying new things. I welcome any and all suggestions on what to do with the bounty.

If you want to understand more about CSA's, the Ottawa Citizen did an article in today's paper.

Bin #1 and #2: beans, zucchini, pepper, basil and mustard greens (mizuna)

  1. That is a beautiful CSA share! I am so jealous.
    (and am jealous of the book club too!)

  2. Marysol: I am pretty excited about the kale thanks to you. I want to try 'crisping' it! I think tonight might be pesto. It seems like SO MUCH food. But we pluck away at it in between all our going out. My book club is 10 years old. Who knows anybody for 10 years anymore? Just imagine what we have been through together. Great gals.

  3. Thank you for the great blog post! We're working hard out on the farm, it is awesome to hear/read how our crops are being enjoyed in the community.

  4. Hi Robin: It is easy to blog about great produce. Congrats on such a successful summer at the farm.
