CSA Week 1

We signed up for a winter share at Maplewood Organics and got our first share almost 2 weeks ago – I know I’m posting this late, but I’ve got so many pix to post that I’m really behind!

For our first share, we received: a huge butternut squash, a bag of potatoes, a huge stem of brussells sprouts, a bunch each of kale, chard, baby bok choy, and scallions, two leeks, a bag of lettuce, a celery root, tons of parsnips, two each of red and yellow onions, a head of garlic, and a bunch of arugula.

Here are some of the things we made with our yummy produce:

First, a to-die-for arugula and herb salad:
