What's in the CSA box? Week 2

Last week's CSA box from Doe Run Farms was amazing, and almost all of my food experiments turned out well.  So I've been looking forward to this week's box and secretly hoping for one vegetable in particular.  

Do you see them?

Who hooo!  We got 2 lovely, super sweet, and crunchy bunches of

Also in the box:
2 bok choy, 2 kohlrabi (without their tops this time), 2 bunches of radishes, 2 bunches of turnips, 2 bunches of beets, 1 pepper, kale 
plus freebies:
 extra peppers and eggplant

After cleaning and prepping my veggies for storage, the very first thing I made was more of the lovely radish leaf pesto that we all loved so much last week.  It is made with radish leaf, olive oil, garlic, almonds, lemon zest and Parmesan cheese.  
You can find the complete recipe at Chocolate and Zuchinni.

Radish Pesto is amazing on bread.  It also adds a nice spark to pasta sauce, which complimented the eggplant Parmesan I made from the before mentioned eggplants beautifully.
