CSA: Week 1

The weekly trip to the CSA has begun!  It’s the first week of the season for Supernatural Organics.

 The weather in Iowa this week has been brutally hot (mid-90s with a pretty hefty dose of humidity), so I do not know if that slowed down some of the plants for the first week.  Shane, however, did reassure me that lots of stuff is coming in nicely and this is a departure from last year when rain seemed to delay planting or ruin what was in the ground.  Here is to hoping for a great season!

The bounty this week included asparagus, spinach, green onions, and a healthy bunch of cilantro.  The asparagus was gone on Monday night for an early evening snack following a dinner of leftovers.  The spinach and green onions are slated for the salad that goes with me to work every day after I workout.  Unlike a lot of people who consider cilantro a noxious weed I do like the taste and smell of the herb, but I have a heck of a time trying to figure out recipes.  A friend suggested putting it in rice as a way to jazz that somewhat bland staple up a little bit.  We shall see.

Until next week…
