CSA Share Week 2
Today was the second week of our EOW (every other week) CSA share. It is quite a haul: spinach, garlic scapes, kohlrabi, bok choy, romaine, arugula, chard, radishes, 2 quarts of strawberries and snow peas. Tucked in with the romaine you will see a bit of white plastic grocery bag and a basil start.
We had arugula salad with chick peas and radishes for dinner, and strawberries for dessert. It is summer!
THE ROT REPORT
As of today, we used everything from last week, except a bunch of bok choy that rotted. I think that I didn't trim, wash and dry it well enough before putting it away. This week I took more care. Each vegetable was washed, trimmed and thoroughly dried before wrapping in kitchen towels, and nestled into a large plastic storage container. Hopefully this will work better.
At this point, the 1/2 share seems to be just right for the two of us.
