CSA Week 7

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

  • onions
  • garlic
  • tomatoes (cherry and a bigger one)
  • cilantro
  • swiss chard
  • purple & green peppers
  • 1 jalapeno
  • green beans
  • summer squash
  • cucumber
  • 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?
