CSA 2015: Week 5

Hello, carrots! Hello, green beans! Check out this week's CSA pickup from Colvin Family Farm:

  • Carrots (a whole bunch of 'em!)
  • Green beans
  • Russian red kale (I'm so glad there's still kale in my share)
  • Basil
  • Yellow squash 
  • Zucchini squash
  • A gigantic cucumber
  • Lettuce
  • Garlic
  • Spring onions 

(I always get spring onions, green onions, and scallions confused. But I found this handy blog post from The Kitchn's website, which has helped me identify what's what in my CSA share.)

I'm super excited about the carrots and green beans this week. I'm thinking I may need to make a green bean and basil salad, and I'm hoping I come across some interesting recipes for the fresh carrots.
