First off, holy crap you’re awesome! I emailed a few family members (seriously, about 5), posted here on the blog and mentioned it once on Facebook and Twitter. Three days later I had met my goal of raising $500 for San Diego Hospice Care. Seriously amazing.

Thanks so much to everyone who donated. I can always exceed my goal, so if you still want to give, please visit my donation page here.

My 5K is April 2, so this weekend my husband and I are driving to Arizona to visit his parents and some other friends. We have to be back by Monday so he can start his new job! Hooray! Maybe someday we’ll both have full-time jobs concurrently again. Or maybe I just need more health coaching clients to keep me occupied.

Either way, the onslaught of vegetables continues unabated. Just the way I like it.

Let’s start with the greens, shall we?

Some fun facts:

  • The Veggie-Hating Husband has eaten most of the carrots and celery from the last two shares. He may need a new pseudonym.
  • That head of Napa cabbage weighs in at just under 4 pounds in the welterweight division.
  • Last time we got kohlrabi we only got one small root and I didn’t peel it very well. Lesson learned.
  • Kohlrabi greens are edible! See recipe links below.

It’s been a few weeks since I last did a recipe roundup, so here are some suggestions that I’m excited about.

CSA recipe suggestions

What would you make? It’s late and I’m full, but most of those recipes make me want to go downstairs and start cooking.

I want to make kimchi in the worst way but last year I couldn’t find any napa cabbage! Hoping for better luck this year, I’d love to hear a report if you end up making some.

Napa cabbage I have! Finding the proper spices is on my to-do list and I will absolutely post about it if I get my act together. :-)

Seeing all those greens makes me even more excited to kick our CSA off in a couple months! What a fresh way to start the season. Beautiful pictures by the way.

The nice thing I can say about Minnesota winters is that you really appreciate spring when it arrives. =)

Thank you!

Oooh! I’m excited for a barley salad. I bought way too much, and I don’t like beef barley soup leftovers.

You know I love a grain salad. You can use barley as warm breakfast cereal, too!

Oh wow, so much good stuff! I don’t think I’ve ever had sorrel before. What does it taste like? I think I would definitely be eating a serious number of salads if all this came my way! :)

The sorrel was fun! It’s got a bright, lemony flavor that was much more intense than I expected. I’m posting what I made with it soon. =)
The greens are really great. I’m not usually much of a salad girl, but I ate two salads yesterday just because the arugula was so tasty.
