So the theme today is Food.
Last week was the end of the season at our CSA garden. What a great harvest. The baby beets were delicious. There's a ton of salad greens - our farmers, Crystal and Eric, planted a bunch of really interesting salad greens. There are spicy ones and mild ones, red ones and green ones. It makes salad eating fun. Some of them look like nothing I'd consider putting in a salad but they are wonderful.
We tried kolrabi for the first time. That was interesting. And I used the basil to make a great pasta and shrimp dish. (the kids, who all love shrimp, were a little turned off by the green sauce. Pearls before swine....)
I loved the produce we got this season. The unusually hot and dry summer made for a challenging season for our farmers. But they did a great job. And it's there first year. I think they've got more of a feel for what people are gonna want next year and I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully, I get a few more fresh fruits and veggies and a few fewer chemicals into the kids. That's the goal.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great Thursday.
