csa 2011: 8th share

This time of year is bittersweet because I know I only have a few farm shares left, but what we’re getting is just so beautiful! There’s a little bit of everything: kale, various greens, a head of lettuce, 2 fennel bulbs, 3 peppers, 1 clove of garlic, 1 lb. of onions, 3 lbs. of tomatoes, 3 lbs. of potatoes (red and purple), 2 chili peppers, dill, cilantro, and the piece de resistance… a sugar pumpkin.

I plan on making another batch of roasted tomato soup, some kale chips, and probably a roast chicken dinner with the onions, fennel, and potatoes. Unless of course, I just munch on the fennel raw (which I also love). We also could pick 20 stems of flowers. You can see some them here, but I did try to pick mostly closed zinnias so the bouquet would last longer:

  1. All that fresh produce looks fabulous. I just picked up my first order from a local online farmer’s market. It’s similar to a CSA but you pay a small fee to join and then pick and pay for what you want each week. I have 1/2 bushel of pears so once they ripen up a bit I’ll be doing a lot with them.
