So it begins!

So a couple months ago, my roommate (who is an exceptionally good cook) talked me into doing a half-share with the organic co-op share program at work. The program my company supports (Lancaster Farm Fresh CSA) is a fantastic organization that helps local organic farmers find resources and buyers for their produce. Cheap organic veggies for 25 weeks? It seemed like a great idea!

However, I forgot a few key factors:

1. I don’t cook anything besides a few Indian and pasta recipes.

2. I don’t eat green things (other than peas)

But now the first shipment came in – and I don’t actually recognize most of the vegetables I picked up this morning. In fact, even my roommate didn’t know what one of them was! O.o (Fun fact: Mizuna is not a Ukraine potato but rather a Japanese herb).

So.. I decided that as I will likely need help gathering recipes and/or identifying my weekly assortment of green things, I shall appeal to the benevolence of the internet.

Family, friends, strangers that are still reading this for some reason: please help! I’ll be posting the vegetables I get every weekend and picking them up on Monday morning. Recipe suggestions, applause and/or commiseration about my lack of cooking technique, and general encouragement will be greatly appreciated. 🙂
