The Box Is Here

For the second year, we're shareholders in our local CSA program. Once a week we go to Fort Hill Farm and pick up a big box filled with whatever organic produce the farm is picking that week. It's always a surprise, and it's always good.
This week we got the first box of the season, loaded with broccoli raab, head lettuce, salad mix, spinach, scallions, radishes, and the best strawberries we've had all year.* As the summer progresses, the box will get heavier, full of carrots, corn, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and plenty else. By the time our share winds down in the fall, we'll have enough potatoes, squash, and beets to carry us to the arrival of winter.
As we work our way through this abundance, we'll be offering recipes. In the meantime, check out the recipes offered on Fort Hill Farm's site. You'll be glad you did.
* We split our share with our friends Kevin and Cynthia, so the box actually contained a lot more than you see in this photo.
