CSA {Community Supported Agriculture} Week 13

The only way to arrive at the complete realization my family does not love vegetables as fully as I do is to be in week 13 of your CSA bushel. Open my fridge door to the largest head of bok choy you've ever seen falling to the floor, the crisper drawer will reveal (I'm serious) 17 peppers, 4 eggplants, 3 heads of celery, a bag of lettuce, a bread bag of rainbow chard, some random loose kale, 2 heads of cabbage, and...uh...I think you get the point. All of these vegetables are either eaten by me, preserved, frozen, or somehow begged onto the husband and kids. Yes, begged. You should hear the groans when a simple veggie tray of sliced green pepper and kohlrabi graces the table. Apparently, I'm told, "other people" can't eat raw vegetables like a machine. Pah-shaw! Eat up! Your gut will adjust. 

Amelia, my Sweet Beet Farmer Friend bundled to the nines, for what was the coldest morning I've worked in the field. After farming on this particular morning, I went home, made tea and ate a huge bowl of buttered noodles in the tub was really productive.
