Geauga Family Farms Summer CSA – Week One

Hooray, hooray, hooray!  The first week of our summer CSA through Geauga Family Farms has finally arrived.  I can’t say how much I’ve been looking forward to today.  This year, I signed up for the shorter 15-week single share so I’ve been extra-anxiously awaiting our pick up day.

Anyway, without further ado, in this week’s share we received, from left to right, a box of blueberries, two tomatoes, two heads of lettuce (one green, one red), one zucchini, one cucumber, a box of orange grape tomatoes, two beats three beets (oops …) with greens on, and one sweet onion.

There are definitely going to be some salads on the horizon for lunch at work this week.  I’m almost definitely going to make a blueberry jam of some type, since I have a lot of homemade pectin hanging out in the freezer that needs to get used up.  The beets will be roasted and the greens sautéed, though I don’t know yet to what end.

    I’m not much of an onion eater but those big sweet ones make a great onion pie or soup. I really like them.
