Today was the first pick up for the Fresh Fork CSA. We were expecting the following items.
- 1 whole pasture raised chicken, 4-5 lbs
- 2 lbs organic cornmeal
- 1 bunch cilantro
- 1 bunch radishes with tops
- 1 head assorted leaf lettuce (approx .5 lbs)
- 2 hydroponic cucumbers
- 1 quart farmstead yogurt
Farming is never an exact science, here’s what we received:
So, I think we have tomatoes instead of radishes and one cucumber instead of two. Update: the tomatoes were in place of one cucumber and we were shorted radishes. We’ll get our radishes next week.
Here’s our current plan of attack:
The chicken is frozen and we put it in our freezer. I cleaned the lettuce so it’s ready for salad. Nick is excited to make corn muffins with the corn meal. I chopped and froze the cilantro in ice cube trays. The yogurt will be useful in overnight oats. We already ate our cucumber at dinner. It was small (think pickling cucumber), but delicious! The only thing I’m not sure about is the tomatoes. I’m sure I’ll figure out a good use for them or I’ll freeze them for later in the season.
