10/02/08 CSA SHARE: What I Got

Such a birthday!
Here’s what I got:

RED OAKLEAF LETTUCE…………1 hd
GREEN CRISP LETTUCE………….1 hd
BABY SALAD TURNIPS…………..1 bun

They have nice greens attached. Woohoo!
LONG RED PEPPERS……………..3 pc
BELL PEPPERS…………………….1 pc
Got a green one, traded up for a reddish orange one.
BABY BOK CHOI………………….2 pc
Looks more like teenage bokchoi.
SWEET DUMPLING SQUASH……2 pc
No idea what color they are inside — they are green outside.
SUNSHINE SQUASH……………..1 pc
Looks like a pumpkin, if you ask me.
SPINACH………………………….1 bun
I got a bag of spinach leaves.
RED TOMATOES…………………3 pc
CHERRY TOMATOES……………1 pt
I got yellow cherry tomatoes – I love them! They are sweet            like candy!
ONION……………………………1 pc
EGGPLANT……………………….2 pc
Traded for 1 onion and 2 tomatoes.

I think those of us who play in the trade box always feel like we come out ahead…. I put in what I don’t like or cannot use and take out things I like. It is always a crapshoot — depending on the time you arrive/who has arrived before you…. sometimes there are things you like, and sometimes not. I’ve been incredibly lucky (Tonight, I actually had to decide between taking a lettuce and taking a tomato– I went with the tomato– duh! we know I am struggling with green smoothies… I will drink my tomatoes)

My challenge this week will be making these squash work with my diet proclivities (know ye that I am working on taking off at least 10 lbs in the next 2 weeks!)
