S&G 1

CSA!

I thought my scheduled day to pick up my veggies was Thursday, so it's a good thing I re-checked the email I got from Gathering Together Farm this evening - my scheduled day was today! So I hopped on my bike and pedaled down to a truck parked in front of a house near Fred Meyer, signed in, and filled my panniers with veggies.

It just barely fit in my panniers! I was worried I was going to bounce some of it out on my way home.

When I got home I unloaded - it filled up the whole stovetop.

Contents: Rhubarb, romaine lettuce, spinach, red kale, carrots, Walla Walla onions, spinach, pea tops, cucumber and cilantro.

I ate some braised kale and pea tops with some leftover onion, and some mashed potatoes. I am now very full and I'm happy that I had a healthy dinner. 'Cept I don't like cilantro. I will take it to work in the morning.
