Details about this week's
The carrots are sizing up and yummy as can be!
The cukes are slowing down, so not quite as many as last week.
Eggplant or Cauliflower
Dark purple Japanese type or globe or a surprise crop of cauliflower that decided to mature (we had given up hope)
Try roasting whole cloves of garlic alongside potatoes.
Last of the greeny-beanies for a while. The next planting is coming along, but we aren't seeing blooms yet.
Large, green pointed pepper called Carmen
Dark green jalapeno
Also known as Dinosaur Kale
Sweet and Red Onions
Walla Walla onions that become quite sweet when cooked. We can't get enough of them! Also, one red torpedo onion.
Use fresh or hang upside down in a dark location to dry for use later (a paper bag works great to catch leaves that fall off as they dry).
Tomatoes of all shapes and sizes are starting to turn. Everyone should have several slicing tomatoes and a scant half pint of cherry tomatoes. Way more to come! We will reuse the pint containers in the future if you return them with your CSA box.
Striped skin is yellow fleshed and dark green skin is red fleshed. Both have seeds and are sweet.
Yellow New Potatoes
This is a variety called Satina that is similar to Yukon Gold potatoes. Creamy texture and sweet taste. They just might be our favorite variety.
Summer Squash and Zucchini
Try last week's recipe for Summer Squash Sloppy Joe's. Even Edith loved them.
