7/5/12 CSA SHARE: WHAT WE GOT

POST #762

I have lost my calendar, so I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to volunteer today, so I went over to the community center early.  The truck was there, but no one had started to unload it yet.  There was one volunteer there, setting up the tables.  I offered to go out and start unloading the truck.  Great fun, some kids had opened the fire hydrant right by the driveway we use to unload the truck.  Swell.

I got the truck to move to the other side of the street – no way we could unload in that spray (I only have one pair of shoes, and I had to go to work tonight).  Then I started to unload the truck.   I got two loads into the community center before the other volunteers arrived (hey! great exercise! Good for the abs and the biceps — a little hard on my back)

As it turned out, I did not have to volunteer tonight, so after we had unloaded all the boxes and piled them on tables, I just grabbed my share.

Here is what they said and what we got:

What they said, and what we got:
Zucchini – several pcs……………4 big zucchinis
Cipollini Onions – 1 bun
Red Beets – 1 bun
Radicchio – 1 hd
Carrots – 1 bun
Broccoli -OR- Cabbage– 1 hd…..cabbage
Magenta Lettuce – 1 head
Romaine Lettuce– 1 head

I am probably going to juice the carrots and a beet.

I have enough sauerkraut for a while, so I’ll probably make some kind of slaw.

Interesting salads on the way – what is magenta lettuce? Does it taste different?
