We joined our local CSA after not belonging for the past two summers. In addition to all the yummy veggies, we were able to get a big box of locally grown beef. I have come to the delightful realization that I don't have to go to the grocery store as much anymore.
That said, I am looking forward to the summer progressing and a wider variety of veggies. We are being BURIED in greens. We eat salad, but the girls would stage a revolt if we served only salad for dinner. I've ended up freezing quite a bit of spinach and kale as we just aren't getting to it and yet we are still composting too much.
I really need to spend some time finding new recipes for some of these veggies. One cookbook that has been a big help is From the Cook's Garden which is filled with recipes based on produce that I don't really know what to do with such as....swiss chard.
Now to figure out to do with all the bok choy in the fridge....
edited to add--I'm loving the kid-friendly veggie ideas. Bring them on! Thanks!
