Today we picked up our first box from our Kretschmann Farm CSA subscription. Being early in the season (and because they got a late start due to the rain) it was mostly greens and rhubarb, but hey that's cool with us! They also included some extra goodies to make up for it:

The big bag on the left is mixed greens including pea shoots (which the kids really like). There is also a bunch of fresh basil, rosemary and thyme. The white bag is full of organic mushrooms, the stalks are rhubarb, and the bread is 7 grain from Friendship Farms in the Laurel Highlands. The little-kid-hands were not included in the box.


This bread would have been great with a soup, but it didn't last long enough once it got here.

Butter with fresh chopped herbs on 7 grain bread.

Our first CSA dinner. The Friendship Farms bread with fresh herb butter and mixed greens in a dressing made with herbs, lime, and olive oil. We also added chicken and sliced mushrooms. It was gooooooooooooood.....

After dinner I ended up finding some amazing plant deals while trying to find replacements for the eggplant and tomatoes I killed the other day. I found a dwarf Moonglow pear tree, a semi-dwarf Ayers pear tree, and a white heirloom eggplant and green-with-white-stripes eggplant along with melon seeds to direct seen once the bed is finished in the next day or so. Hopefully I can get some pictures up tomorrow.
