CSA Share, Week 13

CSA Share, Week 13

Well, clearly the summer’s harvest is rocking and rolling. Check out last night’s haul! OMG, look at all those tomatoes! And our farm has actually had an animal (or several) that has been eating them up, so just imagine what we’d be getting otherwise. Here is the breakdown:

6 lbs. of tomatoes
2 green peppers
1 red pepper
2 cukes
3 leeks
2 zucchini
carrots (I don’t remember how much)
3 squash
3 lbs (I think) of potatoes
2 lbs onions
3 heads lettuce
1 melon (we picked a cantaloupe – last of the season)

PLUS, PYO cherry tomatoes, basil, dill, cilantro, parsely, scallions, beans (didn’t pick any this week), and flowers.

Jake apparently ate more cherry tomatoes than he picked. Man, I never met a kid who likes tomatoes as much as him, especially considering that neither Drew nor I particularly love them. But I tried one and even I think they’re tasty! The heirlooms are delicious. We had them in a salad at lunch (of course we had a salad in prepration for fair food tonight, LOL!). In other good news, the eggplant curse is broken!!! Note the absolutely lack of eggplant this week. I have to say that I am rather relieved.

As for plans for the veggies… I think I’m going to try a recipe for potato and leek gratin that was in this week’s CSA newsletter. Maybe some tomato-zucchini soup? Minestrone? Maybe I’ll blanch and freeze the squash? Or make chocolate and zucchini bread? I really don’t have anything set in stone, so we’ll just see what I feel like 🙂
