Veggie overload

These two grocery bags are full of veggies that we have to eat in the next week. Normally we aren't quite so ambitious in our produce consumption, but we skipped last week's CSA delivery and got a double share this week, so we are rolling in:

3 pounds of beets
2 pounds of carrots
4 pounds of fava beans
2 fennel bulbs
2 garlic bulbs
2 heads of kale
2 heads of lettuce
2 pounds of squash

We get our CSA veggies from Sauvie Island Organics. It's our first time using a CSA, and we're loving it. We paid a lot up front ($500), but for 28 weeks we'll get a bag of fresh organic veggies every week. Since it works out to $18 a week, it's actually turned out to be a bargain, and now I don't have to deal with buying all these veggies at the farmer's market.

Any recipe suggestions? Fava beans are entirely new to me, and I've only eaten fennel a few times, so I don't know what to do with them.
