This is the first year I bought a half share of the market basket from Danaray Farm, a biodynamic farm. I picked up my first share and it is overwhelming. I got the following:

golden beets
yellow beans
garlic scrapes
flat leaf parsley
2 small bunches of broccoli de rapi
2 heads of some kind of cabbage
escarole
red leaf lettuce
green leaf lettuce
about a dozen ground cherries

for only two people - and one who is not crazy about vegetables - i have to find someone to pass some of the bounty on to

i am going to roast the beets and cook the beet tops; the yellow beans are good as well as the garlic scrapes and parsley; i'm going to keep one of the heads of cabbage and the lettuce....

and john has just informed me that his friend has gifted us with swiss chard, lettuce and god only knows what else...and he doesn't eat vegetables!!!

Nice!  I can't wait for corn and strawberries and tomatoes!  But I'll try to slip by our nearest one this weekend for some garlic and spring onions.  Maybe some asparagus for Mike?

Oh those.

That's White Russian kale. I didn't get any. Maybe next time. ;)

Incidentally I figure this time I'll hang around longer than in the past, particularly now that I've left eGullet. I don't know when I'll return, but it's not going to be anytime soon.

Glad you are here, Soba!  As I said in my message to you, CK is near and dear to my heart and it's wonderful to see it picking up again.

I buy from them every Saturday.  Unfortunately I got there too late in the day last weekend.

So, Stash - how do or can you compare NYC and where you are now?

I'd be interested in hearing about the comparison, too!

It's awesome.

Let's put it this way -- because of California's long growing season, I was still able to buy San Marzano tomatoes this past weekend. If I were still in NYC, tomatoes would be gone already.

We bought 2 lbs. of San Marzanos

I slow-roasted the majority:

amd turned it into tomato confit:
