Hey! I’m back in weekly business! The first CSA distribution was this afternoon! I may have been the second person to get there – the swap box was untouched!
Despite my promise to eat everything that came in the box, I did trade the Lettuce Mix for another bunch of kale. Otherwise, I brought home exactly what was in the box.
How convenient that we got all these greens, since, this week, my Healthy Homesteader training course calls for me to make a “super green powder” from greens — I reckon I could just dehydrate everything in the box and finish my homework, but I probably won’t, because I am hungry.
Who knew that chive blossoms are little purple flowers that smell like onions? I think I will throw them in the green powder anyway — I don’t think I’m really ready for flowers in my food.
The mustard mix is a nice big enticing-looking bunch of different kinds of leaves. I guess I’ll eat a few of them to see what they taste like, and then put the bulk of them in the green powder.
In preparation for this delivery, I’ve been growing a jar of lentil sprouts and another one of sunflower seed sprouts.
At the same time, I expect I will use the kale or the collards together with some sea vegetables to make a dish for a potluck I’m going to on Saturday.
