CSA 2022 week 6: asparagus and rhubarb

CSA 2022 week 6 distribution

It was raining fiercely when I drove to pick up this weeks’ box at Beaverland Farms. I suppose it’s good for growing things, but I’d rather not be sopping wet! Ah well, it’s CSA 2022 week 6, and not only is there more rhubarb, but there’s asparagus!

Asparagus is one of the first crops of spring, and the season lasts only 6-8 weeks. In peak season, the spears will grow as much as 2 inches per day. I’m hoping for much more asparagus in the coming weeks.

  • salad turnips (hakurei)
  • radishes
  • rhubarb
  • asparagus
  • onions
  • lots of spinach


With a CSA subscription, you don’t make a list and then go buy the produce: you get the box, and the goal is to use it all up before the end of the week. While trimming and washing the vegetables, I thought about how I might use them. So many ideas!


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.
