My boyfriend's back and you're gonna be in trouble, hay-la-day-la, my boyfriend's back! ...and by boyfriend, I mean CSA program, of course.
Yes! You've heard right! It's back! Imagine my excitement when I came home from the grocery store only to find a brand new box of fresh veggies begging to be let in from the rain. Vegetables! Local, fresh, just picked, organic, seasonal vegetables!
Be still my beating heart!
But how did I know they were a new box and not the old one? The delivery dude that drops off our CSA box always places the new one two racks down on our utility shelf from where I store the old box. And when I took the recycling out I noticed the box had been moved.
Oooooooh.... Either the CSA delivery man had been here or the crazy homeless people that occasionally inhabit our back yard are getting ballsy.
So! What did the first box of the new year have in store for us? Let's look, shall we?
- 1 great big bag of beautiful Braising Greens.
- 2 massively phallic Carrots.
- 2 leeks.
- 1 big head(?) of Pac Choi.
- Winter Salad Greens (Hells yeah!).
- 1 Bunch of White - maybe Milan? - Turnips.
- 2 Smallish Winter Squash.
- 1 Bag of Frozen Strawberries.
What gets you rip-roarin' excited? Is it vegetables? Or something a little more flashy? What gets your heart pumpin?
