CSA Week 6

If you're keeping careful track, you'll have noticed that there was no CSA entry last week. Because our delivery happens on Wednesday, we were skipped last week because of the Fourth of July. They'll make it up at the end of the season - though the prospect of winter vegetables like butternut squash horrifies me. (I gag at butternut squash. Literally. This could be a problem in a few months.)

The produce from the farm is running fast and furious now:

  • Salad mix
  • Sugarsnap Peas
  • Broccoli
  • Swiss Chard
  • 2 Cucumbers
  • 3 Yellow Squash
  • 2 Green Onions
  • Garlic Scapes
  • Cilantro
  • Parsley

And at the greenmarket yesterday morning, I bought blueberries, red gooseberries, and sour cherries.

AND, one of my co-workers returned to the office from 10 days in Alaska, and was preceded into the office by a Fed-Ex delivery of 35 pounds of flash frozen silver salmon and rock fish that he had caught on Saturday, and which he proceeded to hand out to anyone who wanted some. I took a piece of each for the other members of the household...since I don't eat fish.

So, all in all, it was a great day for local and/or wild foodstuffs.
