CSA Veggie Adventure - July 15, 2009

The haul was a bit smaller than usual, but not surprising due to the extended heat and drought. When you buy a CSA subscription, you not only get bounty, but you also agree to share the farmer's risks of growing. So, this week's haul:
  • Flowers (always appreciated!)
  • A jar of "fresh sauce" - blended mix of raw tomatoes, basil, etc.
  • Whole tomatoes
  • Baby & regular squash
  • Eggplant
  • Peppers
  • Chiles
  • Basil
Wanted to dig into that fresh sauce right away, but there were still leftovers to eat in the refrigerator, dangit. Tonight, however, is a different story. Thinking of lightly steaming some eggplant & squash, then mixing together with brown-rice pasta and pouring some of that fresh sauce over the top.

Spoke with the CSA producers at the Farmers Market where I pick up my subscription. They're going ahead with a Fall/Winter subscription. $25 a week, and they plan on growing things like kale, chard, lettuces, tomatoes (as long as the frost holds out), broccoli, cauliflower, and more. Purchase of this subscription will depend on Spouse's and my employment situation, but will do so if we can.
