Oh good lord it has started . . . .
I signed up again for a 1/2 share of from Wilson Farm’s CSA. I’m not going to photo-document it again this year, but I’d be curious what anyone else is getting/liking/disliking from their CSAs as the season goes on.
I didn’t realize it was starting this week so I’ve done a mad scramble to find any last bits of frozen veggies still lingering in my freezer from last year - and shamefully I’ve found a few bags of things. So now not only do I have to get through what I receive each week, but I also have to get through what I didn’t get through this winter. I feel a lot of veggie soups coming on in the next week!
But the thing I found funny with the arrival of the first basket was the panic of seeing the beets. LOL We had so many beets last year and I just completely ran out of ideas and was sick of eating them. So right now that is the only thing in the basket that I’m just like - screw it if I don’t eat them (sorry I know I’m supposed to use every part of everything but that is where I am right now).
My plan this year was also to pickle/can/freeze what can be from the get go, so that I can focus on eating and enjoying the items that I’m most excited about while they are fresh out of the fields. But now I’m realizing that how on earth am I going to have time to pickle/can each and every week?!?
I need a strategy . . . . . maybe every 2 weeks. But right now I have cucumbers and beets that I already know need to be preserved somehow. Has anyone just frozen beets?
