This week’s box contained English peas and tendrils, mustard greens, Swiss chard, lettuce, beets, radishes, and strawberries! I am thinking that the peas and tendrils will go into some sort of pasta dish (maybe ravioli); the mustard and beet greens will have their place on my new favorite pizza; the beets will be roasted and stuffed with chèvre and served on top of the lettuce, maybe with the radishes (if they don’t get gobbled with butter and salt first); the strawberries may become a pie along with some rhubarb that was given to me this weekend; and I’m not sure what to do with the chard…
This week at the farm was rainy but still lots of fun. I met two more of the farmers, Julie and Grace. Julie was picking kale and Grace was picking lettuce. I also met Farmer Dave’s CSA Coordinator, Heidi, AND I got to say hello to everyone picking up their boxes. Heck, I even got a little knitting done on the side.

The pick-your-own mint is going crazy!
Tuesday is quickly becoming my favorite day of the week! In other news, I head to the podiatrist today and I am hoping for some good news. I’ll also have some FO information for that project that I’m knitting in the photo above – it’s a super-quick and cute hat that was just what I needed to get my knitting mojo back. I just need to take some pictures…

I have an idea for the chard! Have you tried the Orzo soup from 101 Cookbooks? It’s my favorite ever, very quick, and such a delicious meal. Or I always like it sauteed up with some garlic and olive oil. Yum!
