The weekly share

Our neighborhood has a weekly farmer’s market, just three blocks from our house. Last year I got to know one of the local farmers and this year that farmer started a CSA (community shared agriculture). I’ve been meaning to catalog the bounty that has been arriving weekly since May. Now that we’ve entered July it is time to begin.

This week’s share:
– Arugula
– Kohlrabi (purple)
– Zucchini
– Summer Squash
– Tomato
– Assorted Hot Peppers
– Edamame
– Sweet Corn
– Cucumber
– Garlic

From a different vendor I also picked up a pint of fresh, north Georgia mountain, blueberries. Yum!

On the menu for this week, marinated grilled veggie kabobs, grilled sweet corn, homemade salsa, and some sort of stewed greens soup. Tonight I’m thinking a baguette with basil chevre from a local goat farmer, topped with tomato, and cucumber and then fresh, hot, salted edamame on the side.

I’m still not sure what to do with the Kohlrabi and we now have about 12 heads of garlic. Oh the fun of the CSA.


  1. Yay CSAs! Ours has had all sorts of flooding issues…they had to cancel boxes for this week and next week and tack on two at the end of the season to make up for it. Of course, I’m spending most of the summer in New Mexico so I’m missing out :(

    Also, Baguette + Chevre + vegetables = delicious. I usually make a sauce with some balsamic vinegar to drizzle over mine

    Hope everything is going well with Lola!

  2. Every year I want to join a CSA like we did in Madison, and every year passes where I forget. Your bounty sure made me excited for next year!
