CSA: Week 4

Another CSA share from Scratch farm, already! The weeks are flying by. This week's bundle includes scallions (yea!), salad mix, herbs (we grabbed more oregano), peas, beets, and fennel. I really need to brave the beets -- neither of us have ever eaten them and we still have last week's bunch. One bunch will go in a salad, and the other we'll cook or roast.

And pray you, let me speak of my new found love for Oak Leaf lettuce. I've never tasted lettuce so sweet and nutty. Our friend Laura brought some over last night, from her garden, and we picked up more today in the CSA's salad mix. I must plant some in the fall. I truly must.
