Our CSA Share at Green Earth Institute – July 8th, 2011

Posted on: July 14, 2011

Last Friday I was able to pick up our first bunch of veggies from our CSA share at Green Earth Institute.

CSA Veggies - July 8th, 2011

This week’s haul included Garlic Scapes, Scallions, Bok Choy (it’s related but not actually Bok Choy), Kale, Sage, Peas, Summer Squash, Beets, Radishes, and Lettuce.  To tell you the truth – I had never heard of garlic scapes or the ‘bok choy’ relative before.  And, I’m trying to be mindful and use as much of these veggies as possible!  This is on top of the 3 heads of romaine that I harvested from our own garden on Friday.  Here’s how I used them this week:


For lunch we had a nice big salad with home-grown romaine, beet greens, a little bit of radish (2 of the small ones), carrots, sugar snap peas, and garbonzo beans.


I had planned to make a stir fry Saturday night, but it didn’t work out – so that’s going to be dinner on Sunday!  I’ll use some of the garlic scapes, bok choy, maybe some summer squash, some sugar snap peas, a bag of frozen stir-fry veggies, some baked teriyaki tofu, and chow mein noodles.
