Again, a disappointingly small haul. We were told zucchini, squash and cucumbers but received none, which makes me sad. I guess the weather has been really off this year. But again, if you look at
CSA 8 2011 and then CSA 8 2012 it does seem like something else is off. Also, I hate fennel. haha. I am excited about the sugar plums though. YUM.
1 bunch Basil
1 bunch Swiss Chard
1 Bulb Fennel
1 Head Lettuce
½ Dozen Pastured Eggs
Wish you were close enough to trade. I love fennel.
That would be great!
The sunflowers are so cheerful & you can feed the birds with them when they get droopy.
Yes! As I learned the first year, you cannot keep sunflowers long or they start to smell like rotting diapers haha
I feel your pain on the quantity of this month’s selection. Have you tried fennel cooked? I’ve converted someone with this recipe 2 nights ago: Angel Hair Pasta with Fennel and Spicy Tomatoes @ The Splendid Table’s site. ❤ Love your blog!
I’ve never had sugar plums but can only think of sugar plum fairies! What are they like?
Um . . . the plums not the fairies 🙂
I’m pretty certain the plums taste like faeries. Yes I’m certain.
They taste like fairies? Am drooling now 🙂 Love fairies 🙂
