CSA Veggie Adventure - July 8

Only four more weeks of veggies from our farm subscription. Montesino Ranch CSA is going to try out a Fall/Winter subscription for the first time this year. If it's not too pricey, will try it out while I also try my hand at growing our own Fall/Winter crops. In the meantime, this week's bounty consists of:

  • Flowers (yay!)
  • Chard
  • Beets
  • Squash
  • Baby Melon
  • Tomatoes
  • Eggplant
  • Chilies
  • Peppers

Now I'm hungry... thinking raw pepper and squash slices with some hummus dip. Mmmm, Summer veggies: a lazy cook's delight!


  1. We just signed up for a CSA in our community too. We pick up our basket of fresh vegetable next week.

    As a kid we always had a huge garden. We even grew our own popcorn and I never realized what a wonderful thing it was to actually have vine ripened cantaloupe.

    It's all about local produce. Hope you enjoy the fall crop too.

  2. I've been loving the food coop. For me, a better choice than the CSA.

    But results are same: thinking a lot about cooking and preparation. Different food every day.

    Good changes.
