This week's haul
Here it is folks: this weeks CSA. Check out that crazy heirloom carrot--that, um...weird yellow thing just right of center. It's hardly recognizable as a carrot. Can't say I've seen anything like it before. But really that's half the fun of a CSA; getting your hands on unique (sometimes ugly) vegetable varieties you definitely can't find at the grocery store.
We're also stoked about the pea shoots (bottom left). These greens have awesome flavor, are amazingly healthy, and look really cool composed as garnish. The drawback: they have a short shelf life, so it's use 'em or lose 'em.
I should mention this picture is composed to maximize aesthetic value, and does not reflect the quantity of produce we receive from our CSA. I.e, We got more than one carrot and two sweet potatoes. Only two portabella caps though. Sadly.
