KWT Winter CSA Month 3 February


I wasn't expecting a rainbow of foods in February. We are digging deeper into the dog days of winter, which means we must dig for our food too. 3 varieties of potatoes, daikon, two kinds of onion, garlic, beets, carrots, turnips. I'm gonna list this down below, that's a tubular amount of tubers.

I'm glad for the 2 spots of green collards and salad mix, which I will thoroughly wash. Slugs! I found 4 slugs in last month's greens. I'm sorry to say there probably were more that I unintentionally ingested. I was a little too disgusted to photograph them, but next time I catch one I will publish the evidence.

Kensington Windsor Terrace Winter CSA Month 3 February
1 head cabbage
1 bag collards
1 little bag salad greens
1 shallot
1 red onion
2 heads garlic
10 medium and large beets
5 medium diakon radishes
5 large carrots
4 medium turnips
3 lbs red potatoes
2 lbs russet potatoes
2 lb sweet potatoes

I'm thinking the cabbage will become sauerkraut, which I haven't had this winter yet. I eat the potatoes for breakfast like home fries (who needs toast?) with an egg on top. I prefer not to eat large turnips raw so I will probably cube and roast them, or try maybe something new. Previously I was slicing the daikon and carrots up and eating them with lunch and for a snack. Daikon cakes seem to be in my future with the volume. I will boil the beets until they are soft peel, cut, and toss them with garlic, shallot, parsley and black eyed peas for lunch. Today I plan to make a big pot of lentil soup with a little bit of all of the above because I'm just dying to taste it all.
