Yum! We picked up our first CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) delivery yesterday in the crazy heat. Included in our half-share was a bag of mixed greens – looks like lettuce, arugula and spinach, some potatoes, garlic scapes, radishes, a small bunch of flowers and a pot of herbs (I loved how the herbs come ready to plant – I chose hot chile).
There are 14 deliveries altogether. Size of delivery apparently ranges from quite small in the beginning to fridge busting in the peak season. Can’t wait for DH and I to eat our fresh veggies. Fresh from the garden always tastes so much better than supermarket…and I like how we are supporting our local farmers.

Looks great. I just learned that you can use radish tops in pesto and probably other things!
Nice start to the season.
I host a weekly CSA Link party and would love for you to be a part of it. Come and check it out and share your link. http://inherchucks.com/2012/07/11/whats-in-the-box-34/. Hope to see you there!
I also picked up from Eagle Creek this week. Your purple radishes look great!
