CSA Weeks 1 and 2 & Camping at Oka Sepaq

Only a couple of weeks into this year’s CSA and I already miss a week!  Better late than never, right?  So here’s week 1 and 2:

Week 1 (pretty much the same as week 0 with the addition of garlic scapes):

  • two small containers of strawberries
  • a bag of sunflowers sprouts
  • a bag of spinach
  • turnips
  • radishes
  • bok choi
  • two big heads of leafy lettuce
  • garlic scapes
I have to admit that there was a bit of carryover from this week.  We went out to eat quite a bit this week, so we didn’t have as much opportunity to use what we got.  I did however make a delicious strawberry shortcake for father’s day, toss some spinach into green smoothies, eat lots of salads for lunch, and make some garlic scape pesto that turned out to be a delicious addition to homemade pizza.

Week 2:

  • strawberries
  • two lettuces
  • bok choi
  • sunflower sprouts
  • kohlrabi
  • spinach
  • garlic scapes
  • kale
  • basil
  • snap peas
This week is looking better in terms of eating up our veggies.  A heat wave means salads are a very appealing dinner idea, not just a lunch item!  The day after pickup we headed out to Oka Provincial Park (sepaq) for a couple of nights of camping.  I took along the snap peas to accompany our steaks:

Contrary to the last time we ventured out for some camping, we took things easy this time and went to a car accessible park.  Dave was even able to use his hammock:

One of the nice things about Oka Park is the beach!  It was nice and sandy, and since we were there on a Friday it wasn’t too crowded.  The water was quite warm too, probably because it was so shallow.  That was a plus (warm!) but also a minus (hard to dunk, we had to sit in the water if we wanted it above our knees).  This is a great beach for family with small kids.

    So much of what you received in your share can be put to use in green smoothies – just in case you have a hard time using it up again.

      Indeed, however there are only so many green smoothies one person can consume (Dave won’t drink them). But I have bern making lots for me. I’m thinking of making some veggie soup too, I like to have it cold when I get home from work to tide me over until dinner, essentially a cooked green smoothie.
