CSA 2022 week 5: lots of greens

Springtime in Michigan always has unpredictable weather. April was rainy and cool, while mid-May has seen the thermometer reach 90 degrees for a few days. A big thunderstorm comes through, and we’ll be back to 60s and low 70s. It’s CSA 2022 week 5. The farmers at Beaverland Farms are harvesting newly grown greens this week: 3 big bags of greens! We’ll have plenty of material for big cool salads just in time for the hot weather forecast for the weekend.

CSA 2022 week 5 distributionThe CSA 2022 week 5 box holds:

  • spinach
  • mixed lettuces
  • arugula
  • mint
  • salad turnips (hakurei)
  • radishes
  • onions


The little salad turnips are new to us this year, and we quite like them! They are very like radishes, but milder when eaten raw. We’re planning to try some sautéed this coming week. Besides splendid salads, produce from CSA 2022 week 5 might be used in some interesting ways:


Follow the season with me, and I’ll show off my CSA box, including ideas of how I might use all the good stuff. Feel free to chime in with comments or questions.
