What’s in the box – week 22

Week 22 of our CSA share from Siena Farms comes after the crazy October snowstorm. I was a little afraid that the tender lettuces and such would be decimated. Apparently not. And despite warning 3 or 4 weeks ago that we wouldn’t see any more peppers there are a handful in this box.

In the top row we have frisee, panisse lettuce, purple cabbage, and treviso radicchio.

The second row has shallots, green bell peppers, another green that we’ve yet to identify (Ted thinks it is escarole) and leaf broccoli.

The bottom row has shunkyo radishes, parsley, watermelon radishes, carrots and parsnips.

What’s in the box – week 21

We’ve reached week 21 of our CSA share from Siena Farms. Only a few weeks left in this year of boxes of veggies.

In the top row we have 2 butternut squash, celeriac and a bag of mixed greens.

The second row has a bunch of kale, 2 leeks, an eggplant and a pile of green peppers.

The bottom row has a mess of carrots, some baby bok choy and a bunch of potatoes (fingerling & yellow).

What’s in the box – week 20

We are now at week 20 of our CSA share from Siena Farms. Fall greens and root veg rule the box this week. Who has a creative use for cabbage and parsnips?

In the top row we have a head of Samantha cabbage, a bunch of kale and a pile of parsnips.

The second row has a small mound of Tiburon (aka poblano peppers) a small head of green oakleaf lettuce, a pile of watermelon radishes and a pile of sweet potatoes.

What’s in the box – week 18

We are now at week 18 of our CSA share from Siena Farms. The newsletter indicates that this is the last week for eggplant (hurrah!) and peppers (boo!). We were overwhelmed with eggplant this year, to the point where we were giving them away. Peppers on the other hand fit into almost anything.

In the top row we have a bag of mesclun mix, a head of arrowhead cabbage, a bunch of red Russian kale and a bunch of parsley.

The second row has several machiaw eggplant, a bunch of fall radishes, a bunch of golden beet and a couple parsnips.
