Last of the Farm Shares

28 Jul

Our nine weeks of fresh vegetables from Two Small Farms ended last week. It was a great experience and I can’t wait to participate again next summer. We could have continued our subscription (awesome since California weather is so great for extending the growing season) but I’m leaving the west coast soon and Brian would not have the time, skill or physical ability to cook and eat all those veggies each week by himself. If you live in the Bay Area, I highly recommend Two Small Farms’ Community Supported Agriculture subscription. You really get your money’s worth and the vegetables (and strawberries!) are delicious.

Here’s what we got on week 8 and week 9.

CSA share 8

Week 8:
young walla walla onions – delicious
parsley root
butter lettuce
giant scallions – YUMMY!!
heirloom tomatoes – each tomato is so unique in look and taste
turnips – pretty good with pork belly! wish I could make it Chinese style with beef.
romaine lettuce

CSA share 9

Week 9:
carrots – big ones!
young walla walla onions – they were so dirty/muddy this week.
corn !!!! so lucky we got corn in our last share!
new potatoes – yay!
purple cabbage – super heavy head
butter lettuce
heirloom tomatoes

    Curious if parsley root is the same as a parsnip? I love parsnips but never thought that the tops might be parsley. any insight?

      They’re actually different. This is Hamburg Root Parsley, which looks similar to parsnips but they’re different veggies with different flavors. I can’t tell you what parsnip tastes like but parsley root reminds me of carrot with nutty flavors and a hint of parsley. I like it better than parsley itself.
