battle of the csa boxes, week 7

This was a bonanza week, the last week of our trial period with Inland Empire. We got:

  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 1 bunch of small celery (the grower emailed me telling me that it's for cooking only and didn't come out as nicely as they would have liked.
  • 2 heads lettuce
  • 1 bunch chard
  • 1 bunch of dandelion greens
  • 1 artichoke
  • 3 oranges
  • 6 loquats
  • 3 small onions
  • 6 new potatoes
  • 2 small green peppers
  • 3 heads young garlic
  • 2 small round zucchini
  • 4 avocados
  • 1 head uncured garlic
  • 1 bunch baby carrots
  • 1 bunch red scallions
  • 2 grapefruit
  • 1 bunch of what I thought were collards but the grower tells me is broccoli or cauliflower leaves, that explains why it wasn't exactly right. It was tasty though.
  • 1 bunch small leeks
  • 2 red onions
  • jar of honey
Wow, what a haul!
