CSA Summer Harvest #3

In our CSA bag this week, we received sweet onions, fresh Rocambole hardneck garlic, Thai basil, Asian eggplant, shallots, Swiss red chard, and squash. The newsletter we received with our weekly harvest explained the process of hand labor involved in growing the sweet onions, shallots, and garlic. “All are planted one plant at a time by hand, weeded by hand at least once, then harvested and cleaned by hand. Lots of hands.”

From this week’s bounty, I used the squash and basil in Grilled Zucchini Rolls with Herbs and Cheese. I made Szechuan Eggplant Stir-Fry with the Asian eggplant, Thai basil, and garlic. With the Swiss red chard, onions, and garlic, I made Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Swiss Chard and Pecorino Cheese.
