Where did the past two months go? Hard to believe it’s already August! We had a very rainy week up here in northern Michigan and I know that everyone’s flowers & vegetables were very happy to have some.
This week’s CSA was full of vegetables that I’m very familiar with – except for the summer squash, but I think that will end up being easy to use up. As you can see, we brought home the following
- tomatoes (cherry and a bigger one)
- swiss chard
- purple & green peppers
- 1 jalapeno
- green beans
- summer squash
- a basil plant (which is now sitting in a glass of water on our kitchen windowsill, happy)
With band camp all week, my cooking has been a bit limited, but I thankfully have only one more day! I plan on playing around with many of these veggies this weekend, between preserving (yes, you read that right) and cooking.
Hope all you CSA-ers out there also found some great stuff in your shares this week.
Anything in there you’re excited to have/use/try?
