Another Week of Kale (and Other Things)

I managed to make good use of my plentiful CSA haul last week. I still have some garlic and the chard left, but other than that, everything was consumed. This week's share, on the other hand, didn't impress me as much. I got extra kale and lettuce because others passed it up again. I may be getting sick of it, but I'll use it (or freeze it, if possible) just the same. In any case, the share was more of the same this week:

  • 2 bunches of kale
  • 1 small bunch of scallions
  • 2 heads leaf lettuce (2 different types)
  • 1 head of new garlic
  • a handful of garlic scapes (free-for-all item)
I'm glad I got those zucchini and yellow squash, tomatoes, carrots, fennel, beets, apricots, nectarines, strawberries and cherries at the farmer's market on Sunday. I need the variety. I'm looking forward to the eggplant, raspberries, blackberries and other treats that will be coming from the CSA soon.
