Pot Pie Farm CSA share – my “piece of the pie” on 6-4-11

I stopped by Pot Pie Farm yesterday for a visit and to pick up my CSA share. What a great afternoon! I always love visiting Pot Pie Farm and of course, hanging out with Carol Bean is one of my favorite things to do – ever.

So – what’d I get? take a look!

YUM. What all is in there, you ask? Well….. there’s a bag of lettuce mix, a bunch of garlic scapes, a dozen large eggs, a pint of lavender sugar, a bunch of very sweet carrots, swiss chard, a bunch of green onions, a little bag of arugula microgreens (zing!) and a bouquet garni (rosemary, sage, cilantro, marjoram, oregano, thyme and dill). My plans for this?

Well, I’ll certainly start with a frittata with the chard, onions and eggs. The carrots are so sweet that they’ll be a lunch in themselves. I’ve got a couple of salads in there, including one arugula microgreen salad that will sit on top of tomato slices. I chopped up half of one garlic scape and put it on my butter to whirl last night’s sweet corn in – YUM. And I’ll use the lavender sugar for strawberries and maybe I’ll make some shortbread with it too – like shortbread cookies.

Thanks, Carol! See you again next week!

Here’s my garlic scape corn butter……..and o YEA, it was good…

  4. I have been wanting to participate in a CSA for some time now, and information on the web can be scant – thanks for posting! Do you know of a CSA for poultry in the area?

    • You know, I don’t, Amanda, but I will gladly ask around. Elizabeth Beggins did a series on CSAs – maybe she knows. Stay tuned.
