How many greens can you eat in a week?

I apologize in advance for not having a picture for this post. You will just have to imagine in your mind’s eye what our refrigerator looked like a few days ago (Hank, did you get a picture?), because it is too late now. We have eaten too much of it.

Here is what we got:

  • 2 heads of bok choy (Which are being eaten tonight with our tofu and asian greens with peanut sauce.)
  • 1 bunch of kale (1/2 of which was put into the pesto that we made for last night’s grilled cheese sammies.)
  • 1 bunch tarragon (All of which was added to the pesto for the sammies mentioned above.)
  • 1 bunch swiss chard (Sauteed as a side with last night’s sammies.)
  • 10 scapes (1/2 of which have been consumed between sauteing with the swiss chard and the pesto).
  • 2 heads of lettuce (We made huge salads for dinner on Tuesday night..mixing bowl size huge…and small salads for lunch today. We have about 1 portion left.)
  • 1 bag of spinach (some of which was used on the sammies)
  • 1 bunch escarole that we will be braising probably tomorrow night.

So, after two nights of eating we have put a pretty big dent in the CSA share for this week.

  1. Answer to your question: many, many, many greens.

    Unfortunately I don’t have a fridge pic, just farm shots.
