CSA Week 1

We bought a weekly CSA box (Community Supported Agriculture) from our local farm where each week we receive a box from about 50 different types of locally grown fruits and vegetables.  We have even received plants, Maple syrup, jam, and honey!

I started a Pintrest board to help inspire me with recipes and preparation ideas for the items in the box each week.

Here is our first week:
  • Chub Cucumbers
  • Onion
  • Lettuce
  • Romaine
  • Asparagus
  • Kohlrabi
  • Swiss Chard
  • Baby Red Potatoes
  • Herbs: Stevia, Tarragon, Rosemary, Dill
  • Radishes
  • Zucchini 
I love that I have no idea what some things are and research the veggies\herbs in each box and find fun recipes

Here is a picture of this week's items

I made Kohlrabi Fries for dinner, which were super good, I used the coconut oil as the recipe called for but used seasoned salt, chili power, and pepper spices.  It had a great kick and I really like the Kohlrabi flavor, just wish they were a bit crispier.  I only used 2 so I have 1 more to play with this week!

For my lunch tomorrow I put together a salad using the green and yellow cucumbers, radishes, lettuce, and romaine.  Pretty simple, nothing fancy but should be delish.

Shed is all done!

Here is the finished shed!!  I am so excited how this turned out, reminds me of my trip to Switzerland.

How cute is this door!?  My husband is so talented!

Fun little addition, corbels at the sides of the shed

Ok, not totally finished, its one of my typical 98% finished kind.  Like adding the latch so I don't have to keep a board wedged against it to keep it shut, planting hostas around the base, and shelving in the shed.
