It is here!! Our first veggie pick-up was today at the CSA farm.
We got spinach and mesclun(we think), bok choi, radishes, romaine lettuce,cilantro and fresh eggs(grass fed and free to roam), with a little note inside that said they were laid with love by Becky, Debbie, Peggy and Jenny.
Here are the kids having their first taste. I sliced up some radishes and we went for it. As you can see, they were a little too spicy for M.
My goal is to eat our way through that box before next weeks pick-up on Wednesday. I think we can do it.I am feeling good about it! I have been checking out all kinds of sources to find recipes for what to do with what we have(thanks Colleen...she is a veteran box getter and has much more experience). I hope that i will have some exciting new recipes to share here. As for tonight, we promptly made a salad and enjoyed every bite!
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
