It's the first week of my Earth's Harvest Farm CSA for 2014!

This week:

I selected:

head lettuce
arugula
rhubarb
shallot greens (like scallions)
radishes

All prepped and ready for the refrigerator:

I washed and spun dry the lettuce. Some of it I ripped and mixed with a little arugula and made 3 vacuum sealed jars of salad. I bagged the rest of the lettuce leaves.

Everything else is just bagged this week.

I prepped salad veggies to go with my vacuum sealed lettuce, though only the radish is from the CSA this early in the season. Celery, carrot, green pepper, radish, cucumber and red onion, sliced and vacuum sealed in jars; they'll keep for several days.

Here's a finished salad with lettuce and arugula from the CSA, with celery, carrot, green pepper, radish, cucumber, red onion, grape tomatoes. With Annie's goddess dressing and Olivia's butter and garlic croutons.

I used a little arugula in my sort of Greek salad with sardines.
