CSA Week #4

Hey guys!  It's CSA Thursday!  Lots of greenery this week, check it out:

Look at those gorgeous colors!
Aren't these little guys too cute??
  • Summer Squash & Zucchini Teaser (can't wait for the big hauls later on in the season!)
  • Green Onions
  • Head Lettuce
  • Basil
  • Chinese Cabbage (I sense a kimchi recipe in my near future!)
  • Mixed Salad Greens
  • Rainbow Chard
  • Radishes
Lots of goodies, obviously!

And Mindy from The World In My Kitchen sent me her 2nd week of her CSA!  Thanks for joining in again Mindy!

Looks like Mindy got some kale, beet greens, collard greens, spinach, mesclun, & cilantro!

 I'd love to see what you guys are getting in your CSAs, Farmer's Markets, or even your own garden!   

***If you guys received a CSA this week, what did you end up getting?  I'd love to have a weekly round-up of your CSA goodies (if you participate in one), or even if you made a weekly visit to your Farmer's market (or even just picked from your own garden!) - I'd love to see the local produce everyone gets!  So feel free to e-mail a snapshot of your goods (as well as your name and blog title (and don't worry if you don't have a blog, your name will be just fine!) as well as a link to your blog) at mtlabor85 (at) yahoo (dot) com and I'll post them in next Thursday's CSA post!  


  1. I can be a bit of a dork sometimes, what does CSA stand for?

  2. Not dorky at all! I was in the same boat last year! CSA = Community Supported Agriculture. It's basically where people can sign up with local farms/distribution centers to obtain a weekly share of local produce! Everybody wins!

  3. Nature has such a wonderful way of showing us color.

  4. Peggy, I love looking at your fresh veggies from CSA but I'm more curious how you are going to use it for your cooking! What's your menu~~?? Oh tomorrow are you getting a poll? :-) I'm excited!

  5. You guys are so lucky, to be able to get vegetables like that.
    Denmark is still way behind in that way. Maybe if you live in Copenhagen, you can be lucky to find a Farmers Market once in a while, but every one else have to buy the vegetables of poor quality in the supermarkets....

    My best,

  6. I told you how lucky you are right? I will be a couple of months for us to have this growing around here,

  7. My CSA starts in 2 weeks and I can't wait! Look at all the delicious & healthy goodies you're getting -- this is so exciting.

  8. Hi sweet! I loved your recipes. Very nices!
    So, I'm a new follwer.
    I invite you to know my blog and if you want, please, follow me and know a lot of the brazilian food!

    Kisses from Brazil!.
