This week we get to eat sweet corn, red potatoes, spaghetti squash, salad greens, summer squash, carrots, cherry tomatoes & vine tomatoes, garlic, green beans, a dozen fresh eggs, an onion, and a white cucumber.
This is the first white cucumber I've ever seen. I can't wait to try it! Farmer Liz loves planting heirloom varieties of vegetables that most of us have never even heard of before. That is another reason to join a CSA...you get to try new tastes, textures, and colours that add a real variety to weekly meals. Sadly, many of Liz's plantings did not survive this summer's drought. In true farmer form, she is not giving up! Farmers Liz & John have already made plans to run irrigation lines out to the back fields. For now, we will keep enjoying what did manage to survive and be all the more grateful knowing what a challenging growing year it's been.
My plan for this week's veggies includes a potato salad with green beans dressed with balsamic, olive oil, garlic, Parmesan & lemon. Yummy! I'm also going to make zucchini muffins for back-to-school mornings.
