Summer CSA Week Nine — A Good Mix

Posted on

A mix of what I would call late spring and early summer veggies this week. The weather has influenced what we get.

The list:

6 ears sweet corn – Chiques Roc Organics
1 bag red tomatoes – Riverview Organics
1 bunch orange carrots – Tasty Harvest Organics
2 slicing cucumbers – Tasty Harvest Organics
1 bag pattypan squash – Twin Pines Organics
3 green zucchini – Coyote Run Organics
1 bunch yellow chard – Eagle View Organics
1 bag green bell peppers – Eagle View Organics
1 bunch green kale hearts – Peaceful Valley Organics
1 bag green beans – Healthy Harvest Organics
1 bag garlic – Eagle View Organics

No heirloom tomatoes yet. No hot peppers. Still getting kale and chard in mid July. Interesting how the rain and the lack of really hot weather has slowed down our transition.

I never really got into the pattypan squash before but this week I think I will be roasting them using olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Simple, but supposedly really tasty.

With seven of them, though, I may be grating and freezing some of them for future use.

As for those carrot tops, there are varying opinions about whether you should be eating them. Breezy Willow shared a link about them recently. I use them in a pesto recipe. Since ours are organic, and not sprayed, I think that health risk is negligible, and we don’t seem to be allergic to any veggies in this house.
