beets, carrots, potatoes, squash
What’s for Dinner?
What a sight to come home to…a “bonus” CSA share from Sauvie Island Organics! This is just one of the many ways our local farms are so friendly and flexible. Miss a week of veggies while you’re away in August? No problem, they said. Enjoy a winter bulk box in December instead! (I had no idea what this was, but was quite agreeable.) Perfectly timed in the midst of the holidays, I got this gift on my doorstep. Thank goodness my winter CSA takes a break this week, or I just might have had to find a good home for these. It wouldn’t have been hard. Let’s see what kind of week I might create with twenty-some pounds of welcome-home veggies. It’ll be a good one to kick off the new year, for sure!
