As of the last time I posted, I had not yet used the chard we received in week 5’s CSA share. That night, Dave sautéed the chard as a side dish for our dinner.
In Week 6 we received:
Our farmer says: “This stuff is tasty and monstrously productive. I like to chop it up and sauté it with garlic and onions, then toss it with pasta, black pepper, some goat cheese and fresh basil. Yum.”
What we cooked:
I used the lettuce in a salad, and funny story about the cucumbers – I thought they were zucchini. I even labeled them as zucchini to post on the blog! Dave pointed out that they were actually cucumbers, so I used them to make the same cucumber salad I posted about before.
In Week 7 we received:

And now for a special announcement!
