CSA vegetables. What you see above was all included in our "mini" share, and its so totally enough for Dave and I for a week. Woo!! It consisted of: (enormous) swiss chard, Italian parsley, (stinky) chives, a zucchini, garlic scapes, and a head of red leaf lettuce!! And this is only the beginning!!
The only item I hoped to get but didn't was asparagus, but no biggie - because actual real-live garlic scapes WERE included! How lucky am I??? I already had a recipe on deck for the swiss chard, and I'd read some articles recently on the garlic scapes, so I think I'm going to make a pesto out of it. If I love it as much as I think, I'll pop over to the farmer's market this weekend to look for more. I mean, hey, if I can pesto it up and freeze it for later, I'm all for it.
The wait was absolutely worth it, and I'm even more excited for the (tasty) summer ahead!!
