What’s in the Box? Summer 2012 CSA Week Ten

Well, it’s finally happened. S and I received our very last summer CSA share yesterday. Sigh. I really shouldn’t complain, though. Our “summer” share lasted halfway through October, which is nearly a month into autumn. Not too shabby. Neither were the contents of our box:

Basket filled with squash cabbage, sweet potatoes, and more. In front are two bags, one of spinach and one of carrots.

Root veggies galore!

Although the pickings aren’t exactly slim, they’re surely not as numerous as they have been in weeks past. What this box lacks in variety, however, it makes up in, um, volume. There’s some weighty produce in there! Including this little guy, who escaped my original photo:

So – what’s in the box? (Other than a WHOLE LOTTA CARROTS!)

  • Bok choy
  • Butternut squash
  • Carrots
  • Cilantro
  • Cippollini onion
  • Garlic
  • Red cabbage
  • Spinach
  • Sweet dumpling squash
  • Sweet potato

…yep, it’s definitely autumn. :)

As usual… what should I make with my haul? 

S and I already enjoyed a curried carrot soup, but there’re still lots more veggies to eat!
