This week’s share included: peas, snow peas and green beans which have all been staples for a while. Summer squash made an appearance again, a few members received zucchini and the rest yellow squash. There are lots of squash on the plants, but for some reason they just aren’t growing as fast as they should be.
Beets have made their debut this season! One member’s favorite is the beet greens so I made sure that these were included. They can be sauted like any green with a little butter and onion or garlic.
Tomatoes are also a first. We have had a few small handfuls of these little yellow cherry tomatoes in the past week. There were finally enough to divvy up between our CSA members today. There was a mix of regular red tomatoes (I couldn’t find the marker, so I can’t tell you what variety specifically), red grape, yellow cherry and a few red cherry tomatoes.
