2013 CSA: Week 6

"Wait. What happened to Week 5?"  

I've been out of town more days this month than I've been in town, which meant I didn't get to pick up my Week 5 share (on June 30). But the lovely thing about having a CSA is that you can share it, and I "gifted" my Week 5 bushel to a vegetarian friend who I knew would love and know how to use the produce. (If you're curious though, you can check out the Colvin Family Farm website to see what was in the box for the week.)

I actually didn't get back into town until after the Week 6 pickup (on July 6), but my dad picked it up for me. He did a better job storing it this time, so when I returned home this week, I only had to do a little bit of cleaning and processing. 

I know this is way overdue, but here's what I got for Week 6: 

  • Broccoli
  • Yellow squash
  • Onions
  • Cabbage (fish tacos are on the way!) 
  • Two bunches of red kale
  • Two heads of romaine lettuce
  • Cucumbers
  • Garlic
  • Purple kohlrabi

My goal this week is to figure out what to do with the purple kohlrabi. I tweeted out a call for suggestions, and I got this good reply: 

If you have any suggestions for recipes for ANY of the veggies I get, please let me know in the comments! I love getting CSA tips.
