Beets, squash, and leeks, oh my.
Don’t forget lettuce, potatoes, radish, carrots, papalo, plums, and eggs. This week’s CSA offerings were quite beautiful.

This is my third year in the Southside CSA and it’s always a highlight of my summer. This year I have a half veggie, half orchard, half eggs, and half (shared) berry. Officially, this share is mine alone, but I tend to cook for my roommate, my boyfriend, friends or coworkers often. The vegetables make up most of my lunches and dinners for the first week with a few things saved for the next (off) week. To keep from getting overwhelmed, I set up my berry share on the opposite week of my vegetable/fruit/egg share.
What a haul this week! Cilantro, basil, carrots, kale, leeks, beets, green peppers, zucchini, purple potatoes, corn, a dozen eggs, and two kinds of plums.

Hi Fellow Southside CSAers,
I’m Tamara and I split a ‘just veggie’ and an ‘empire’ share -which comes to the same thing as a Vegan’s Deluxe ,which in my mind I’ve been calling a vegan’s delight – with my boyfriend and our 17th month old son Meshak. We aren’t strictly vegans but we eat a plant based diet 6 days a week and cook most of our meals at home. We try to keep at least part of every meal raw. Usually that means we are experimenting with ‘salad’. Over the past year, we have been converting to a completely organic diet (having a kid will do that to you). It’s a process. An important part of that was joining Southside CSA this year and we are super excited about what’s to come.
Since the season is just getting rolling our share included:
½ pound of asparagus
1 qrt of strawberries
…both of which were easily carried home on the bottom of Meshak’s stroller.

We’re two households of two each, and we’ve been sharing the full Domino plan, full orchard and half eggs. Usually, we meet up at the share on Monday nights, divvy up the goods (or arm-wrestle for the things that can’t be easily divided), grab a drink and talk shop, then return to our respective abodes to cook like fiends. But recently our schedules have made it so we had to switch weeks, with each household taking turns with the entire share. Thus, both households are ponying up for this post, with some items from the previous week’s share. So this is more of an example of how many meals you can get out of 2 weeks of a share like ours. It’s a two-fer Monday, good times!
The Nov 1 share looked like this:

This weeks goodies:
1 bunch of spinach 1 head of lettuce 1 bunch of radishes 1/2 pound of tomatillos 1/2 pound of jalapenos 1 eggplant 1 acorn squash 1 bunch of parsley 1 bunch of mint 1 bunch of coriander apples galore! punnet of raspberries
I was a little worried about doing the member diary this week, as at the last minute Lucas had to go away for work which left me on my lonesome with all this fruit & vege to consume, to get creative with & to write about! Not the worst task in the world, but I’m 35 weeks pregnant and feeling very much like being cooked for rather than doing the cooking! But I soldiered on and this is what the week looked like! (more…)
