When I joined the CSA I had originally hoped to blog about each share. Life is proving too busy for that, but I do take pictures of each share once I get it home and spread it out in my kitchen.
I split my share with a co-worker, so when I get home from work and get my daughter settled with a snack and a Little Einsteins episode, I have time to divide it and bag his up.
Here’s share 7, picked up on Thursday, August 16. I always take a picture of the easel where they list everything so I don’t forget what I have:
The garlic from this share was UH-MAY-ZING! It was huge and really flavorful. I made some quick pesto using it and the basil from my garden. Thank you, lightlycrunchy, for this inspiration! (There wasn’t enough to freeze.)
The ground cherries were great — so I’ve been told. I made a roasted salsa out of them and a couple of the tomatoes and my husband ate it all before I could taste it. I’m glad we got more this week (8) so I could make more and then hide it from him. I’ll post a recipe next time…
Here’s share 8, picked up on Thursday, August 23:
I’m not familiar with “dragon beans“, but apparently they are just another wax bean variety. They’re pretty yellow beans with purple speckles. I don’t suspect they’ll taste any different, but we’ll have them tomorrow for dinner.
