Sonne Garten

We just joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program through our nearby organic grocery store, so every week we get a box of fresh fruits and veggies. Below you'll find pictures of a few of the items in our first box. Some of the items we got were easily recognizable - napa cabbage, onions, kabocha squash (Japanese call it pumpkin), a turnip (though giant-sized!), but others were not. With the help of the store owner, we got the Japanese names of the unfamilar items, and then I did some internet research to learn what to do them!

These are the full length of a newspaper! They barely fit in the fridge!

This one was not only pretty, but it was delicious as well!

We're looking forward to seeing what comes in our box every Monday, and it certainly is going to put my culinary skills to the test!
