Greensgrow CSA - week 1

We had our first CSA pick up last week and so far so good. It wasn't a ton of food but it's early in the season so we'll see what happens as the weeks go by.

This is what we got and where it's from:

Strawberries - Fifer Orchards, Wyoming, DE
Asparagus - Fifer Orchards, Wyoming, DE
Boston Lettuce - Flaim Farms, Vineland, NJ
Spring Onions - Lancaster County, PA
Mushrooms - Bo-ka Specialties, Kennett Square, PA
Cilantro - Greensgrow Farms, Philadelphia
Olive Oil Buns - Tony Rolls, Philadelphia
Cheese - XX Sharp Cheddar, Le Rayesville Cheese Factory, Le Rayesville, PA
1 dozen Free-Range Eggs
Ground Bison - Backyard Bison, Bucks County, PA

We had really tasty bison burgers with cheddar cheese, boston lettuce, and tomatoes on olive oil buns. I grilled the spring onions and asparagus for a barley salad with a lemony vinagrette and goat cheese (SO good). I need to use up those mushrooms & the rest of that lettuce asap - I'm thinking a mushroom barley risotto might be in the works soon. I'm determined not to waste a bit of this stuff!
