Nothing to Trade For

weekly CSA produce share
Anyone want a bunch of cilantro? Or, better yet, know what to do with it?

Well, we headed down a bit later than usual to pick up our CSA food (our cat had a vet appointment, and for some reason she won’t go on her own), and really hoped to trade the cilantro that we knew we’d be getting. But, it was not to be. Cilantro is one of those things that people either love or hate, and it appeared that a bunch of cilantro-haters had just gone through the pickup before us. All the trading baskets were full of cilantro — well, there were a few baskets with onions, but we don’t need more onions — so, we brought home our cilantro. Now, we don’t really care for cilantro, so we trade it every time we can; so far, we’ve been lucky getting good trades quite regularly. But, this week, we’ll just have to figure out what to do with our bunch.

Our share:

  • White onions (3)
  • Swiss Chard (1 bunch)
  • Butternut squash (1)
  • Red potatoes (4)
  • Sweet potatoes (3)
  • Salad mix (1 bag)
  • Tatsoi (1 head)
  • Cilantro (1 bunch)

And, from the surplus basket, four lemon cucumbers, just perfect for salads.
