csa week four

muth family farm's organic csa week 4: escarole, green leaf lettuce, curled kale, scallions, amaranth greens, curly endive, dill, mizuna, basil, chioggia beets, eight-ball squash, cucumbers, kohlrabi, yellow squash and zucchini  (the red gladiolus was from a friend at the community garden.)



tofu stir-fry with kohlrabi, mizuna, amaranth greens and eight-ball squash over quinoa

zucchini muffins

the tofu stir-fry was absolutely yummy, though i burned my hand in the process. but... da-da-da-DA, plantain to the rescue! not only does it help my burny bladder (tmi?) it heals burnt and bug-bitten skin. did i mention it grows like a weed in my yard? and that it is a weed?=)

i hope to be back soon to show you what else i've been doing with the produce. (any ideas for curly endive or escarole besides soup?)


  1. seriously gorgeous. love your csa...i didn't take a pic but listed mine today as well.

    check out the farmers market vid i just posted - it's f'd up!!!

  2. I shouldn't read your blog when I am hungry.

  3. oh man, here we go again...I have to be sad looking at everyones beautiful produce. I can't wait until the Fall here.
    Your stirfry is beautiful.
    Peace and Raw Health,

  4. Haven't had a CSA membership since I moved from SoCal to Atlanta a couple of years ago, but your pics are slowly convincing me I just may have to find a local farm to support.

  5. Didn't know that about plantains! Yummy stir fry!

  6. I love seeing what you get in your CSA! Fun to figure out what to do with such a variety. Your stir fry looks amazing :)

  7. Ummm---so inviting. And gorgeous, too.

  8. It looks terrific! Our area got something like this for the first time this year, but they wanted a LOT of money to do it, and there was no indication at all of what they supply. I mean, easily 4 times what I would pay for a comparable amount of veggies at the farm. So we keep supporting the last farm nearby, as we have since I was a kid.

  9. Hope your IC gets better soon! I get that too (usually at a certain time of the month). Never tried Plantain... The stir-fry looks amazing! As do the muffins x
