Saturday was a beautiful day for a trip to the farm. It was also the first week with a full box. I got collards (already cooked up with vinegar and bacon – yum!), bok choy, lettuce, parsley, mint (big pitcher of mint tea in the fridge now – yum again), onions, a full dozen eggs, four navel oranges, and sweet, wonderful sugar snap peas.
I’m not sure what to do with the bok choy. I’ll have to investigate recipes today. I know I like it because I’ve had it before in a restaurant.
The lettuce that I’m growing is not doing much, but it doesn’t matter – I’m getting almost more lettuce than I can eat. Salads every day.
It takes a lot of preparation to get the fridge empty and ready for next week’s box! I’ll be cooking all week. But it’s great.
If you’re in the St. Augustine/Palm Coast/Palatka area of Florida, here is the website of the farm I’m subscribed to. They have a couple of shares left.
