We were so concerned about of CSA farm last week. They knew they had suffered damage as a result of the flooding here in Tennessee, but it took several days for them to determine the extent of it. The only thing they knew right away is that they had lost an upsetting number of chickens. Amazingly, despite damage to property and fencing, nearly all of their spring crops survived! As a result, we didn't even miss a single week of our CSA, and we could not have been more thrilled.
This week's box was an explosion of green. Seriously, both of our veggie drawers are overflowing into the rest of the fridge. We don't get a list of what comes in the box, but we did our best to guess what all the different greens are. We did get one herb that despite our best efforts we still can't identify. It has a lemony smell, but is clearly not lemongrass (because it has leaves). Any guesses?
1 bag of kale
1 bag of beet greens
1 giant head of green leaf lettuce
1 box of strawberries
Mysterious, unidentified herb
Also: 6 eggs, 1 broiler chicken, 2 New York Strip steaks
