I picked up my small CSA farm share earlier today — first of the season! The contents: a loaf of Amish honey wheat bread, lettuce, asparagus, a basil plant and a lot of green onions. The farm also threw in a small tote bag as well.
We had the asparagus for dinner tonight. I steamed it along with some fish. My steamer puts off some heat, but not nearly as much as my oven so it gets a lot of use over the summer!
I re-potted the basil and this is probably the best it’s going to look. I have a black thumb as it is, plus our apartment gets very minimal direct sunlight. But it’s nice while I have it!
Overall, I’m really happy with what we got and I’m looking forward to next week.
Has your CSA started yet? What did you get? What yummy things have you found at the farmers’ market this season?
