It’s Friday and that means we have not only made it to the end of the week, but it’s also time for #farmsharefriday! Today’s post is going to be super quick since I don’t have any new recipes to share with you from last week’s box and I am on a time crunch this afternoon while writing this (can we say last minute?). Again, these posts are not sponsored and just my personal experiences and opinions with a local farm share program.
Alright, let’s get to it!
This week’s box contents:
1 doz eggs
2 heads of lettuce
1 bag of spinach
1 very large bunch of basil
Now I consider myself a very non-picky eater and will try almost anything several times before determining I do or do not like it, however I can confidently say I am not a fan of beets. We did receive a few of them this week and luckily I have some coworkers that can take them off my hands.
Well speaking of work, I have to get ready and head there this evening. If you follow us on Instagram you occasionally see some story posts from my real job as a 911 dispatcher. I always thought that job title was mysterious so I try and share as much as I can about it to those curious.
See you soon friends!
It’s time to see what we received in our weekly share box from our local farm!
These posts are not sponsored! Just a little insight from me on how these programs work.
Yay for Friday! We made it!
This week for #farmsharefriday I have a really great recipe for greens, one that the entire family enjoyed! I also have so much produce from the box this week that I couldn’t squeeze it all into one photo. As the weather continues to improve, I have a feeling our share boxes will continue to reflect that!
First up, this super easy collard greens recipe…1.5 year old approved! I love fast recipes with minimal prep time and this recipe was perfect!
Next up, I have a photo of some of the contents from our share box this week! I left out of the photo the rest of the turnips, and opted to show you just one of each so the picture wasn’t too cluttered, you get the idea!
2 large heads of lettuce
1 bunch asparagus
1 dozen eggs
1 bunch collard greens
1 bunch each red and white turnips
1 bunch parsley
1 bunch green onions
I am excited to have more collard greens for dinner tonight! I will be back next week to share what we loved and the contents of our next box. Follow along on Instagram for all of our decor/renovation/building projects, there’s always something happening!
Thank you for stopping by the blog today!
It’s already that time of the week again, my favorite day (for many reasons)! We finally have the hot and humid Iowa weather that we are used to, and that means all sorts of goodies are popping up out of the ground, especially the herbs! We had a lot of leafy greens in our delivery last week, and I want to share a juicing recipe for anyone looking to add a little greenery to their diet. And don’t worry, my 1.5 yr old enjoyed it with me, so it can’t be that bad!
-2 green apples
-handful of each: kale, spinach, lettuce
-4 stalks celery
-1 Lemon (peel removed)
If you have never juiced anything before, read the directions for the machine you are using as they are all a bit different. I really like to juice vegetables because it’s easier than eating them and still provides all the health benefits! This recipe was perfect for all of the leafy greens we had in our share box last week.
Ok, on to this week’s box contents!
-Fresh flowers for planting
-Two heads of lettuce
I have never tried fried green tomatoes, and it looks like this week I might have to! I better run and finish my outdoor work before it storms again, you can definitely tell it’s spring time in the Midwest lately! As always, thank you for stopping by the blog today!
It’s time for #farmsharefriday!

We had another wet week here in Iowa, but that didn’t seem to influence this week’s share box quantities! This week contained a nice mix of local items and produce, some that I would have probably not tried/purchased out on my own…which is part of the fun of it!
First, let’s recap recipes from last week that we tried and loved…
Lemon Asparagus Risotto: This recipe is really tasty, however takes a bit longer to cook than I was anticipating, but that seems to just be my unfamiliarity with cooking risotto.
Rhubarb Crisp: A fast and easy recipe, this one is sure to hit the spot!
Avocado/Egg/Radish Toast…1 year old approved!
If you follow along on Instagram, head over there for the un-boxing video on stories! Here are the contents of our share box from week 2:
-12 brown eggs
-2 heads of lettuce: green and red
-1 bunch kale
-1 bunch radishes
-1 bag cheese curds
-1 bag spinach
-2 lbs of rhubarb
-1 bunch of fresh honey sticks
-1 bunch fresh mint
I already know I am going to try juicing some of the kale and spinach, I just need to grab an apple at the store this week. Stay tuned for how that turns out! As far as the rest, I will be getting creative on google looking for recipes, and I might need a fresh mint mojito to help me search! Yum!
As always, thank you for stopping by the blog today! If you have any farm share questions feel free to submit them here or track me down on Instagram, I will try and answer them the best I can! See you soon!
Hello! It’s time for our first edition of #farmsharefriday that I introduced last week. This is a weekly look at what we received in our share box from our local CSA farm. Not sure what a farm share is or have questions about the risks and benefits of joining? Check out my last post here.
It has been a very wet and cold Spring here in Iowa, so I was very surprised when I opened my box of goodies this week and saw everything. I have a quick video up on Instagram stories if you want to check out the un-boxing, but here is a photo of everything that was included this week.
Week 1 Share Box Contents
-Radishes - two varieties
-Homemade Jam and Honey
