Farm share week 21

In this week's box:
  • Carrots: 1.5 lbs
  • Acorn squash: 1 lb
  • Onions: 1.25 lbs
  • Beets: 1.5 lbs
  • Red leaf lettuce: 0.5 lb
  • Napa cabbage: 1.75 lbs
  • Collard greens: 1 lb
  • Apples 2.75 lbs
  • Parsley: 0.5
The red leaf lettuce is actually two junior-sized heads in one bag... cute and the perfect size to make a salad for two people. I love it! I wish all lettuce was small. According to this week's newsletter (PDF), it's "heirloom mini lettuce," hee. And the thing that looks like romaine lettuce is actually Napa cabbage.

The apples are Mutsu, which is a variety I learned about last year at the orchard where we picked apples -- the attendant suggested we try them. They're like Granny Smiths but without such a tough skin.
