Spring is here! Officially according to the calendar and unofficially according to my CSA box!
It's so funny how by the end of Summer I just can't wait for some good, hearty Fall root vegetables to arrive from the farm....
.....and then by the end of Winter all I can think about are tomatoes, zucchini and fresh basil.
The grass is always greener, isn't it?
Well: this week I got a jolly good surprise! ...Did I just type "jolly good"?
Not only did we get a nice bunch of phallic looking beets - the first of the season!
But we also scored a nice big bag of sundried cherry tomatoes! They looked like little red and orange and brown jewels. My precious! AHHH! So excited!
I know, I know. They're dried. Which means they aren't fresh which means they could have shown up in the middle of January if they wanted to.
Regardless, it's a sign of good things to come!
This week we got:
- 1 Bunch of phallic looking red beets.
- 1 Bag of dried cherry tomatoes.
- The Most Heaping Bag of Winter braising greens ya ever did saw.
- 2 Massive parsnips.
- A Bunch of cilantro.
- Frozen strawberries.
- 2 Leeks.
- Sunflower Sprouts.
