Last CSA box, but First Farmers' Market!
It contained rhubarb, five huge bunches of asparagus, salad mix, spinach, turnips, chives and cilantro. All gone already! I even used the turnip greens to make a raw salad with the turnips juilienned in it ... and made a dressing with chili garlic sauce.
These boxes really do set off cooking frenzies. My CSA farmer's Summer CSA deliveries have already started. I'll be a faithful attendee at our local farmers' markets ... the first one is Pasco's, and I'll be heading there this Saturday morning, May 5. I hope you will be, too!
Be sure to check out the Schreiber and Sons booth. Historically, Schreiber is the only farmers' market vendor to offer organic cabbages, kale, chard collards, mustard ... and a variety of unusual melons and other vegetables.
