Actually, we got everything they said, and the carrots, this time, were not so weeny — they are quite cute and of a decent size. (2 bunches still won’t make more than 1/2 C juice, probably, but, then the pulp can go to some interesting crackers or bread or something.
The surprise was the soybeans! I mean, who ever gets fresh soybeans? I ate a couple, but they were really starchy, or, more, according to me, “beany”. They are in the refrigerator until I get back next week — I’ll sprout them and then see what I can do. I’m excited. Perhaps sprouted they will be like edamame.
Since I’m going away on vacation tomorrow, I gave the lettuce and broccoli to my room-mate, and donated the turnip greens to the share box.
I’m blessed that there is a woman at the CSA who is willing to take my share next Thursday and hold it for me until I can pick it up on Sunday (I return on Saturday — will get in about midnight — love those long distance buses! — $80 RT vs $350 RT airfare… you pay in stress on your bottom, sitting all those hour- fortunately, the bus co said they have wi-fi, so I can fool around on my kindle if I get bored or finish my book)
I’m off-line for the next week. Yea! a real vacation. Just me and the sea air.
