Today I had to check and see what CSA week it was. It has gotten so far that I can barely keep up!This week at the CSA we got 6 potatoes, one bunch of amazing carrots, a bunch of arugula, a bunch of leeks, a bunch of bok choy (I could also have chosen kale or chard), 2 eggplant, 2 squashes that were called something cute like mini-candy or sugar and spice or something, and 8 apples. This was a manageable week. I am on a major backlog. I have veggies coming out the wazoo. So I am actually kind of happy that this week offers a smaller amount.
I am the most excited by the garlic. A WHOLE BAG!! It contains 5 small heads. That's awesome. The Garlic from my farmer's market has been hit and miss this season. Sometimes it is sublime and other times it is dried out and awful. These heads look great. In fact everything I have gotten from the CSA (except the beets, but there is no accounting for taste, right?) has been lovely.
Lastly, we went apple picking with some friends this weekend. So I was a little bummed to find MORE apples from the CSA. But what else are we going to get in New England in the fall? Really? So now I have like 30 pounds of apples. And I still had some left from last week. I am going to have to start making them into dishes to go with dinner, because as desserts or snacks, we are not moving through these puppies fast enough. Sheesh. I have to get with it. Too bad I hate peeling the damn things so much.
