CSA 2022 week 8: kohlrabi and peas

CSA 2022 week 8 distribution

CSA 2022 week 8: can you believe it’s June already? Wow, and this is the 8th box from our farmers at Beaverland Farms. This week, the box moves away from all greens all the time, and starts to add some of the tender young peas I’ve been hoping for.

After a few days of really hot weather, we seem to have settled into moderate seasonal temperatures, which makes me very happy. It also seems to make the pea plants happy! That’s good news for me, because I love peas, and peas simply hate hot weather. When the thermometer goes high, the peas wilt (I’m with you, peas, so do I!)

  • more rhubarb! (yay)
  • mixed lettuces
  • a small head of romaine lettuce
  • big hefty radishes
  • kohlrabi
  • pea shoots
  • snow peas
  • a bunch of lavender


While I’m washing and trimming the veg, to get it all ready for storage and eventual use, I’m taking about all the good eating I might plan in the week to follow. CSA 2022 week 8 ideas, in no particular order:


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