CSA food Week 2

I was pleased again with this week’s selections for our weekly Community Supported Agriculture share.  It was well timed as we literally just finished the last of last week’s food (except for those two garlic scapes…I’m saving them up!)

Here’s what we got this time around:  (click photo to enlarge it)

Everything is picked that morning, which is great.  I’m happy with the sizes of everything.  I was concerned initially that there would be more food than the two of us would easily go through, but so far it’s been just right.

List version:

  • 1 pot containing a Thai basil plant and chives
  • 1 bunch green leaf lettuce
  • 1 really gorgeous bunch of spinach
  • 1 bunch of radishes (we could choose between radishes or more turnips – sorry, Telly!) if you don’t know what I’m talking about, click here and scroll down to see Telly the cat nibbling last week’s turnip greens!)
  • 1 dozen brown eggs
  • 2 quarts of strawberries (and they are SO sweet and delicious!)
  • 1 bunch of green onions
  • 1 bunch of beet greens (yum!)
  • 1 bunch of Lacinato (Dinosaur) Kale (we had the choice between Russian kale or Lacinato)
  • 1 bunch of arugula
  • and….drumroll, please…
  • 2 MORE garlic scapes.  Hilarious.  I’m starting a collection.
The Telly-monster didn’t come to investigate or nibble on this round of produce.  He was all tuckered out after a fierce match with the feather wand and was lying on the bed, panting.
I did get him some wheat grass, but I think he prefers the turnip greens.
Not to exclude them, though, here are the 3 of them being their sweet, worn out little selves:
That’s Rico with the white chin and Telly is snuggling up behind him.
Rufus wasn’t having anything to do with it this time.
That feather works wonders.  🙂

  1. Thanks, Kylee! Yeah, we think our guys are pretty special. They give us a lot of joy, that’s for sure! Last week all three of them were reaching up and batting at green onion stems or nibbling on turnip greens so I figured this time I’d get them good and worn out first. 😉

  2. What a great thing, this is. And a lovely bounty of food. (My husband would have no trouble getting through that garlic.)

    Your kitties look adorable.

    • Thanks, Diane! We are really enjoying it, especially since we just don’t have room to grow everything we’d like to. Our kitties ARE adorable -thanks!

  3. Hi Linnie, yes, Rufus is quite photogenic. He’s definitely a diva of sorts and “poses” for some great photos. We call him our supermodel cat – ha. He’s a super affectionate loverboy who LOVES people. He thinks that everyone who comes to the house is there to see him. (well, they kind of are.)
