CSA 2012: Boxes #3 and #4 and Zucchini Fritters!

Here are some of my creations from Weeks #2, #3 and #4 of my local, Certified Organic CSA, as well as the pictures of my CSA boxes from Weeks #3 & #4. 

Organic Zucchini Fritters over Organic Red Leaf Lettuce w/ Organic Radishes & Scallions and a Mustard Vinagrette.   Combo of Week #3 and Week #4 boxes.

 Gorgeous, home made pie crust (to house a Week #2 Greens & Scapes pie, below)

Organic Swiss Chard & Beet Greens Pie (from Week #2's box).  I used the recipe for my Green Leek Pie using the Chard/Beet Greens and Scapes in for the leeks.  That rosy glow is from the beet greens & red chard, isn't it lovely?

Organic Chickpea Salad w/ Organic Garlic Scapes, Celery & Carrots (also from Week #2).

 The Bounty from Week #3: Organic beets, chard, red leaf lettuce (3 heads), zucchini, broccoli, cabbage and my favorite, scallions!
 I love scallions and these were amazing! 

 Organic Broccoli Soup!

 Organic Zucchini Fritters.

 The Bounty from Week #4 (this week's box): FIVE heads of lettuce (sheesh!), beets, collards, something I'm not sure of (that head of something on the far left, maybe a funky, heritage escarole?), collards, oregano, chard, zucchini and even more GIGANTIC scallions than last week!

 Told you the scallions were gigantic!

I still have a lot of stuff left, namely: scallions (a ton of scallions!), lettuce, three beets & their greens, and some zucchini. Oh heck, and some radishes from Week #2, and that head of cabbage and that head of I don't know what it is...uh oh! I did freeze about four cups of grated zucchini (I grated all of last week's zucchini and froze all of what I didn't use for the fritters).  

What to do, what to that this heat is breaking, I will probably make another pie :-) and some salads or something.

What are you guys making with your CSA bounties?  


  1. That scape and greens pie!!! Want so much!!!!

    1. Try it, Tami, especially with your new garlic garden! (P.S. It would also be amazing with that fresh garlic you are about to harvest!!).


  2. I belong to Honeybrook's CSA too and the funky head of something is radicchio....or at least that's what the sign said at the farm. Definitely was bitter!

    1. Thanks, Shannon! It looked so dark, I didn't think it could be radicchio! Lordy, another salad green to deal with...:-)

  3. You are doing an incredible job working through yr CSA bounty! I wouldn't know what to do with it. The beet greens and leek pie sounds so good. I definitely dig those zucchini fritters too... I may have to make something like that soon. Yums.

    1. Thanks, FF, I really need the encouragement! Last night I grilled the rest of the beets AND the radishes with some of the scallions and they came out awesome.

      The leftover zucchini fritter batter I think I'm going to re-invent as a dolled-up tofu ricotta.

      Slowly progressing...but better move it because Wednesday is coming!! :-)
