Share week 5

CSA Share Week 5

Greg and I rode our bikes down to Adam’s Morgan to pick up the CSA share at the farmer’s market.  We had a great conversation with Michael about his farm operation, food systems, capitalism, obesity and the built environment, and a whole slew of other interesting things.  I mentioned this blog to him, and he was really excited about it.  It was very stimulating conversation.

We got another nice mix of items, and with some leftover items from last time it should be a week full of delicious meals.  We got:

  • 1 liter of apple cider
  • 1 acorn squash
  • 6 red apples
  • 2 green apples
  • 3 pears
  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 2 turnips
  • 1 bunch Tok Choy (similar to Bok Choy and to be used in the same way)
  • 1 bunch spinach
  • 1 bunch arugula
  • 1 small green cabbage

I also picked up 4 conventional beets, which I’m going to use to make borsch.
