We had three nights of hard freeze inland this week, but it didn’t affect my CSA farm too badly. He lost the sugar snap peas, but that was all. The goods in the box this week didn’t change otherwise.
More bok choy – it finally hit me (duh!) that it’s really like celery – Chinese celery, I guess. I chopped it up and froze it. When I make a vegetable type soup again, I can throw some of it in there. I guess the dark green color of the leaves probably means that there’s more nutrition in it than regular celery (which has no nutrition to speak of). So I’ll definitely use it.
There were another dozen eggs, four more navel oranges, parsley, mint, lettuce, cress of some sort, and collards. All good except the collards. The first ones were great; these are bigger and really veiny and stringy. I think I like them younger. I went ahead and chopped them up, but I’m guessing they’ll probably end up in the compost.
I’m really looking forward to the summer vegetables. I know he has tomatoes, zucchini, and eggplant going, and potatoes too. Yum.
In the meantime, I’ll keep storing up my lifetime supply of bok choy. 🙂
