CSA Tuesday – 19

CSA Week 19

What’d I tell you about the bags not getting smaller? I love how even the chickens know it’s Autumn so they’re slowing down — only eight eggs this week. I think we’ll be doing some sort of asian eggplant thing for dinner one night this week what with the thai basil, japanese eggplant, and lemongrass. And we got more pears, I’m so glad we’re getting them this year. I guess a neighboring farm has the pear trees and have had a bumper crop this year so they are sharing the bounty with our farm for the CSA. Isn’t that great? And I was surprised to see the little yellow cherry tomatoes this week, they’ll be in Katrina’s lunchbox tomorrow. The greens have started to arrive and even though that means collards and turnip greens — things we have trouble using — it also means fresh salad greens which we love. It’s shaping up to be a yummy week.

CSA Bag Contents: Cherry Tomatoes, Thai Basil, Potatoes, Japanese Eggplant, Kohlrabi, Peppers, Salad Greens, Greens, Acorn Squash, Asian Pears, 3/4 doz. eggs

    Yummy- I should say so!

    Sadly, our csa doesn’t offer a Fall subscription, so we’ll have to wait until next Spring.

    I love, love, love turnip greens and cornbread! What a bounty you have there! I so wish I could have a garden up here in the mountains. I just finished canning some salsa with tomatoes from the farmer’s market yesterday.
