CSA: Week 7

Lots of new stuff this week!  But first, the old stuff.

Lettuce, a lovely head this week.

There’s also more lovely rainbow chard! We had the option again this week to take some chard and/or kale, but the chard is too beautiful to pass up, especially this week.  This is a particularly nice bunch.

Also a repeat, some nice onions. These are smaller-sized and have tasty-looking tops.

I got more green beans, too!  I roasted most of last week’s at 425˚ for about 25 minutes until they got crunchy and brown, like green bean french fries. They were really tasty and definitely worth turning the oven on.

There are more carrots this week, and lots of them! These carrots are tasty.

There are, of course, more zucchini this week.  Seven of them.

And more cucumbers.  Seven of those as well.  My fridge is already full of pickles, but I can’t say I’m sad about it. They are so delicious!

 

There’s also more garlic this week.  I noticed with the last head that this is much harder to peel than what you buy at the grocery store.

Now for the new! There’s sweet corn! I promised Gavin I would save some for him.

We also got our first eggplant this week.  This one is a Japanese eggplant, which is why it looks different than what you may be used to.

I also got a green pepper, which looks like it will make some delicious fajitas.

And there are some sungold tomatoes! My site was the only one to get these this week because they are just starting to come in from their hoop-house tomato plants.

    That green pepper looks huge! And what oddly shaped carrots.
