CSA Pick Up # 4

leave a comment »

I had my fourth CSA pick up yesterday.

This is what you see: 

1 red tomato

1 yellow tomato

1 bunch amaranth greens

1 bunch basil

6 1/3 ounces arugula

2 jalapenos

1 bunch beets

1 bunch Swiss chard

2 sweet bulb onions (1 red, 1 white)

1 large eggplant

6 ears sweet corn

No eggs this time . . . the hens are starting to die from heat.  😦  So sad!

“Amaranth greens, also called Chinese spinach, …are a common leaf vegetable throughout the tropics and in many warm temperate regions. It is very popular in India. They are a very good source of vitamins including vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin B6, vitamin C, riboflavin, and folate, and dietary minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, and manganese. Because of its valuable nutrition, some farmers grow amaranth today.”

Mike and I are making pizza with chicken sausage, tomatoes, basil, arugula and onion (and cheese of course!) tonight.  Mike is heading to Jamestown on Thurs night so I’ll most likely just bring everything else to Jamestown so we can use the grill.
