it’s week 5 of our csa share, which means summer is flying by.
this is the first week where i felt slightly disappointed with our box. we got good stuff, just not a lot of it.
i should know better than to be disappointed though. it’s been forever since we’ve gotten rain and we’ve had record high temperatures lately. it’s not shocking that the crops are suffering.
this week we received:
- green beans
- purple scallions
- purple basil
- mini head of red romaine lettuce
i don’t have much of a plan for the veggies this week. i’m guessing a lot of them will go into a frittata, the green beans will be a side dish at dinner and the cabbage will be chopped up soon for a chinese salad.
have you ever seen purple basil? purple scallions?
we grew purple basil at the garden the past couple of years, so i’m used to that, but i had never seen purple scallions before. yay! my favorite color.
