CSA 2010: Week 4

Well, I was wrong when I guessed that we'd see larger quantities of strawberries soon! It sounds like strawberry season is winding down, and the biggest amount we got in any one week was only a pint. So disappointing! In past years we often got 1-2 quarts a week as part of our share. Wonder why the amounts were so much lower this year. Ah well. That's part of being a CSA member- what you get varies from year to year. And I can't complain about the quality- the berries were as sweet and perfect as always.

Our share this week:

1/2 pint strawberries
1 pint peas
1 bunch kale
1/4 lb. arugula
2 heads lettuce
2 bunches scallions
1/2 lb. chard

The berries and lettuce are gone; I'll use the chard tonight in a pasta dish along with some chickpeas and lemon, and maybe make an arugula salad on the side. Thinking about a scallion pesto with some of the scallions...
