And the new CSA season begins! I didn't get a CSA ("Community Supported Agriculture") share last year because I was in the midst of moving just as the growing season was starting, but this year I got one from Earth's Harvest Farms in Morris, New York.

I was surprised at how much I got for it being so early in the year.

Baby lettuce
Fresh oregano
Scallions
Lettuce
Rhubarb
Beet Greens
Radishes

With the beet greens I made sautéed beet greens (with garlic and crushed red pepper flakes).

Part of the rhubarb I used to make rhubarb sorbet, which was really very delicious!

I used the scallions to make Twice-cooked pork with scallions and noodles.

Asian lettuce wraps.
