CSA 2009: Tenth Share

It became apparent to me on Tuesday that winter is on the way. Yes, I know that fall just started, but already it feels blustery. As I was picking the tomatillos, I was actually shivering — my light sweater was not cutting it. I think we probably have two more bi-weekly shares left.

Nevertheless, a great farm share this week: one head of lettuce, 1.25 lbs of greens (I split them between chard and arugula), a head of cabbage, 1.25 lbs. of onions, a head of garlic, a bunch of turnips, a bunch of radishes, two eggplants, three summer squash, as many cukes as you wanted (they were considered “seconds” but looked great to me), and PYO tomatillos. I skipped the PYO basil because I was too lazy to walk to the other field and the PYO flowers were looking sad. I’m thinking of using the chard tomorrow to make Dara’s Pan-Fried Gnocchi with Chard and Onions. I also plan on making some salsa verde this weekend with the tomatillos. Such a treat! Maybe I’ll do some quick freezer pickles with the extra cukes. Jake has been sick this week so he hasn’t been eating them like he usually does. We’ll see.

  1. Winter is on it’s way here also. So, nice to see some fresh veggie. But, I’m having that feeling they won’t be around for much longer… Eat’em up while we can…
