For most of my life whenever I heard the word “turnip” I wrinkled my nose. Most of what I’d heard about the vegetable was not positive and I’d never actually eaten one before So, when I picked up my fifth CSA share and spotted turnips, I knew what I had to do for the week.
In the fourth week of my CSA share, I found some more things that were completely new to me. There were snap peas, greens, garlic scapes and something that looked like an onion—a purplish white bulb.
My third CSA share contained a little bit more color than I was used to seeing. I was excited to see the fun, different vegetables in my box–an array of purple and pink mixed with green.
Picking up my second CSA share was fun. Instead of picking it up at the farm, I went to the Famers Market in downtown Traverse City to collect my goods. Seeing all the local farmers and such a wide array of flowers and food was so exciting.
