My first CSA box!

Months after other bloggers were able to proclaim "le printemps est arrivé," I finally feel like it's really spring here. Yes, I know, the Dane County Farmers' Market has been going for a month now. Yes, I know, the temperature has already gone past 80° F. But last week Thursday, I picked up my first CSA box.

This summer, Sarah and I will be getting much of our vegetables from Tipi Produce in Evansville, Wisconsin. Farmers Steve Pincus and Beth Kazmar are fairly well known in the region, seeing as how their produce is sold at many of the co-ops in Madison. A coworker of mine also says that they grow the best carrots she's ever had. I can hardly wait.

In the mean time, though, we got:
• a head of lettuce
• just as much spinnach
• arugula
• 1/2 pound asparagus
• ramps
• a bag of raddishes
• rhubarb

If I make anything interesting, I'll be sure to share it with you all.

I'll be thinking about raddish soup.

What're you gonna do if they send you something you don't like? =D

I'll eat in anyway.

I'm trying to be more like Anthony Bourdain.
