Suzie's Farm: Week 6, final week

I picked up my final week's CSA box from Suzie's Farm on Saturday. It contained the following:
  • 1 head lettuce (8.5 oz)
  • yellow beans (13.25 oz)
  • bunch of carrots with greens attached (10.25 oz)
  • bag of spinach (4.5 oz)
  • bag of arugula (6 oz)
  • sweet yellow snap peas (9 oz)
  • bunch of white turnips (13.5 oz)
  • 1 small Romanesco cauliflower, with lots of leaves attached (1 lb 14 oz)
  • small crowns of broccoli (11.75 oz)
  • container of pea greens (4 oz box), originally supposed to be sunflower greens
  • 2 small Sweet Pepper Golden treasure (3 oz)

Can I make anything with the pretty greens attached to the carrots?

I mostly finished everything from last week's box except for the squash and herb mixes. Lots of salads and soups.

Suzie's Farm: Week 5, "Thanksgiving" box

I picked up my "Thanksgiving" box (it was labeled as such) this weekend from the Poway market. Unfortunately, since it was already Saturday, I didn't get to use the items for Thanksgiving. Some of the items like the herb bouquet would have been nice to have. The Thanksgiving box contained:

  • butternut squash, in place of the pumpkin (1 lb 12.5 oz)
  • spring raab, 1 bunch (11 oz)
  • broccoli (8.5 oz)
  • bag of arugula (8.25 oz)
  • bag of chopped spinach (6.25 oz)
  • purple beans (13.5 oz)
  • sugar snap peas (13.5 oz)
  • 2 medium acorn squash (2 lb 5.25 oz)
  • 2 large brown onions (1 lb 10.25 oz)
  • bag of pear tomatoes (14 oz)
  • wheatberry sprouts (6 oz container)
  • herb mix (rosemary, thyme, sage) (1.25 oz)

The enclosed note from the farm raves about the "pumpkin pie" pumpkin we were supposed to get in the box, but it looks like they ran out and replaced it with a butternut squash. That was disappointing since I was looking forward to trying the pumpkin. No fruit again, but that's okay because I am loving all the greens this week.
