Today's CSA Box
Tuesdays are always so fun because on Tuesday afternoon we get our weekly CSA box. Around 4:30pm I drive downtown, take a few turns into one of the historic neighborhoods and waiting on a big wrap around porch is a pile of boxes. According to the farmer, the house (and the porch) are owned by a friend of his whom he pays in produce for the use of his porch for pick ups.
Today's box is very interesting. It contains romaine lettuce, strawberries, white globe radishes, an onion, swiss chard, regular chard, spinach and fennel. The lettuce will be used in salads, and maybe the fennel too. The chard we've had before and spinach we can always find a use for. But what about those radishes?
