This week is my first CSA basket since summer officially started, and it is a good one:
Collard Greens, Black Kale, Tomatoes, Heirloom Tomatoes (Green Zebra), Eggplant, Green Bell Peppers, Swiss Chard, Red Kale, Cucumbers, Pluots, Celery, Basil, Nectarines, Peaches, Fennel, Dill, Carrots, Pink Turnips, and Romanesco Cauliflower.
It smells so good!
There was also a bunch of beets and quite a bit of broccoli. I traded those for extra eggplants and cucumbers. No matter how excited I get about broccoli looking like little trees the husband and kid just don’t fall for it and the poor broccoli ends up languishing in the refrigerator.
Cucumber “chips” are big sellers though.
I also picked up some of Farmer George’s ridiculously good strawberries, as the end of the season is this Saturday. I already have a ton of fruit, but I just couldn’t bear the thought of passing on his strawberries while I still had a chance.
Even Bunny gets a treat. Yum! Carrot tops!
