CSA Week 2 & how we ate Week 1

June 9, 2011

I picked up our 2nd week of CSA produce on Tuesday.  It was pretty similar to week 1, but with beets instead of carrots.  I’d say over half is leafy greens, which we happen to love.  Not sure what we’ll do later this summer if we have boatloads of zucchini to eat, but for now this is easy!

I kept track of how we ate all the produce from week one, just for my own fun.  Here it is.  We definitely felt like we ran out of produce at the end of the week, but it wasn’t too bad.  Maybe I’ll do another one later this summer when things start to get more challenging!  I wonder if I’ll end up needing to freeze things, or preserve them in another way…
