CSA week 17: autumn

City Commons CSA

City Commons CSAAside from a few peppers, we’re seeing all cool-weather crops. There are only three more weeks of CSA distributions, plus for those who planned ahead, a storage share that will contain hardy vegetables. I’ll store those in a cool place for weeks.

Today’s box contains baby beets and their greens, Swiss chard, fluffy green kale, varicolored radishes, basil, green beans, red bell peppers and spicy peppers, mixed lettuce, Swiss chard, and two kohlrabi, one green, one purple. Thoughts for this week’s meals include:

  • kale salad with feta, peppers, and celery
  • pan roasted radishes with thyme
  • thinly sliced radishes on buttered rye bread
  • roasted kohlrabi and squash
  • thyme-roasted baby beets
  • roasted kale chips
  • green beans with garlic/lemon sauce
  • green bean casserole for two
  • roasted peppers with preserved lemons and walnuts
