No, the CSA hasn’t been giving out double shares of beets, at least not yet, although we do remember one year in which the shares were full of what were termed “weapons of mass nutrition,” basically, beets the size of your head. Instead, we doubled up on the beets by stopping by the trading table and swapping out some purple-top turnips.
This week’s share had:
- Beets (1 bunch)
- Carrots (1 bunch)
- Broccolini or collard greens (1 bunch)
- Purple top turnips (1 bunch) — traded for a bunch of beets
- Sweet potatoes (3)
- Navel oranges (3)
- I’itoi onions (1 bunch)
- Romaine lettuce (2 heads)
If that weren’t enough, we picked up four lemons from the Iskashitaa fruit that was available for a donation.
