my first CSA box!

I recently signed up for a bi-weekly CSA vegetable box through Isadore Foods and dun dun DUNNN! i was able to pick it up this past Thursday.  (for those who don’t know, a CSA is “community supported agriculture” where you get a box full of local vegetables.  pretty cool, right?)  i was really excited to jump onto the fall/winter CSA subscription.  my first CSA consisted of:

organic radishes & organic spinach from Brenckle Farm in Beaver County, PA

organic turnip greens and organic arugula from NuWay Farm in Mercer County, PA

and a half-gallon of cider from Sally’s Cider Press in Beaver County, PA

the one thing i love about this CSA (besides it being local and convenient), i’m getting vegetables that i normally wouldn’t pick out at the grocery store.  turnips? radishes?  i wouldn’t even to think to look at them!  now i am challenged to come up with recipes for turnips and radishes.  i’ve been looking around and have found some things to do… stay tuned to see what i come up with 🙂
