Week 8 - July 21 & 24

Hello there -

Here's the list for the week - enjoy!
This week's box weighs about 15 lbs.
  1. One large bunch of carrots - these are Sugarsnax and are very long
  2. Smaller bunch of collards
  3. Large bunch of chard
  4. 5 or 6 summer squash - combo of 8 Ball, Starship Pattypan, Cozelle, Baby Bush, Tigress, Yellow Neck and Straight Neck (yes, we have a lot of squash)
  5. 3 or 4 cukes - Adam or Marketmore
  6. one head garlic
  7. 2 onions
  8. 1 box of tomatoes (on the table)
  9. 1 head of cabbage for Wednesday. Saturday might be lettuce - not sure. The cabbage will be either Early Cabbage which is green and dense or Famosa which is a savoyed cabbage (crinkly leaves)
  10. 1 or two sweet peppers (in the box)

Optional/Choice Items include:
  1. Possibly some spicy peppers. Please be sure you know what you're taking (don't assume they're sweet).
  2. A box of Either - beans (a mix of Northeaster (flat and surprisingly sweet) and Kentucky Wonder), eggplant or New Zealand spinach. The New Zealand spinach is good sauteed. I cut up the stalk and all into 2" pieces and sauteed. The leaves are very tasty, the stalks are crunchy and a little bitter but are still good. Some people like to discard the stalks. If you take eggplant, try making baba ganoosh (sp?) or ratatouille or eggplant parmesan.
  3. There will probably be a little broccoli out - not sure
  4. Herbs - Basil (lots), rosemary (some), thyme, oregano, mint, tarragon, and/or lavendar
  5. Flowers - Probably 3 to 5 stems - check the notes. If these aren't out and you'd like some, please find me and I'll help.
