CSA 2011, Week 2
This week's haul was more turnips, mesclun, spinach, a head of lettuce, and Swiss chard. The turnips also have greens this week, which is pretty exciting (I love baby turnip greens).
I also got a few more radishes out of the garden. There are couple left in the pot, with lovely greenery, but next to no root. I'm definitely going to have to add some sand in for the next batch.
The highlight of last week's batch was definitely the turnips. I combined them with the radishes in my garden and some radishes from the store to make Roasted Radishes with Brown Butter, Lemon, and Radish Top from the April Bon Appetit. The turnips were the same size as the radishes, so everything blended together perfectly, and the lemon and butter were lovely. I served that with the Slow-Baked Salmon with Lemon and Thyme from the May Bon Appetit, which I made with lemon thyme from my garden. I'm definitely glad it's fresh veg season again.
