You Can’t Beet That!

weekly CSA produce share
We happen to love beets and we know that the season is almost over, so we’ll take any we can get!

Look at those beets! They’re huge! Not quite the weapons of mass nutrition that we received several years ago (some of those beets were the size of softballs), but much larger than you’ll find in a supermarket. And do you, dear reader, know why? Because produce for supermarkets is grown for uniformity, storage, and shipping. We guess that any produce that doesn’t match the standards is used for animal feed. Not in consideration are nutrition and flavor. The things that everyone really cares about when eating.

So, this week’s share held:

  • Dandelion greens (1 bunch) traded for more beets
  • Chioggia beets (1 bunch) with a pale bulls-eye pattern when sliced
  • New red potatoes (8)
  • Carrots (1 bunch) tops left for the happy hens
  • Artichokes (4)
  • Gold onions (4)
  • Arugula (1 bunch)
  • Red Russian kale (1 bunch)
