Veggie Pick Up Day

Wednesday was my first veggie pick up day! The pick up spot is just a few miles from my house on Sam Bass Road...very convenient. I encountered a box full of green!!! Salad greens, broccoli, arugula, garlic, radishes, mustard greens, spinach, mint, parsley...and a few tomatoes, oranges and a grapefruit. There aren't quite as many varieties ready for harvesting right now, but as the season progresses we will get to enjoy carrots, potatoes, celery, asparagus and much more. So I sauteed the greens and spinach with the fresh garlic to go with our beef dish and put some mint in my tea! Oh and added an orange to our fruit salad. Tonight we'll use the lettuce, broccoli & tomato for a salad. The broccoli was more like little sprigs instead of thick stalks which I really like cuz it blends nicely into a green salad (I forgot to take a picture before we ate it:) We will see what next week's harvest brings.
