This week from the CSA
Last week we were away so we had our neighbors take (and hopefully enjoy) our CSA share. This week we picked up the following: carrots, beets, chard, cilantro, basil, 2 small heads of Romain, 2 pickling cucumbers, 1 small (hot?) pepper, 5 cherry tomatoes, 1 regular tomato, 1 zucchini, 1 summer squash, 8 red potatoes, a large bag of green beans and a bunch of small plums (our fruit share). We ate the potatoes and green beans for dinner with some chicken from Balance Rock Farm. All of the cherry tomatoes are also gone because, well, I left them out on the counter and Sue ate them. This share is quite diverse (not just leaves, leaves, and more leaves) so I think it will shape into many very nice meals for the week to come.
