Jess & Nick's CSA Delivery #4 - June 14, 2012

Well, Hello there.  It's been awhile since I've been around here.  Nearly two weeks to be exact.  I guess that's what happens to a food blog during a kitchen remodelling project. It's still not completely done, and taking longer than I would have liked.  The good thing, however, is that we now have a functioning kitchen sink, dishwasher, and the stove is back in it's rightful place, so we are able to prepare meals at home again. Also, the stuff that is done looks amazing!  I promise that before and after photos are coming soon. 

Above is our latest vegetable delivery.  Since the weather was stormy and dark in Minneapolis yesterday, I didn't have the natural light that I usually photograph in.  Hopefully the photos, taken on our new counter tops for the tiniest of sneak peeks, convey the beauty of the produce.  Starting in the top left and travelling clockwise we have radish seed pods (just below the flowers are spears of spicy radish seeds); kohlrabi; greens; amaranth, or callaloo as it's known; sugar snap peas; fresh garlic; and strawberries.  Not pictured are the bag of salad greens; the romaine lettuce; and the pretty purple onions.

The delivery truck had some mechanical issues yesterday which delayed the delivery by about 3 hours.  I just wanted to give an extra heartfelt thank you to everyone for all the extra work put into yesterday's delivery.  The email updates were so helpful, the site coordinators were available for questions and concerns, and the drivers and mechanics really came through by getting the truck up and running again.  Thank you all so much for getting us these beautiful vegetables under less than ideal conditions!
