Alright folks, I think it is safe to say that summer is really here! We have had some good shares for ya all so far, but this weeks share is what being a CSA member is all about! While it has been a goofy growing season for some things, it is looking like we are going to have a dynamite year for tomatoes. So we are happy to share the first round of garden fresh tomatoes with you, our members. You will find a selection of Brown Ethiopians, Black Krims, and a few various red and yellow tomatoes that I do not know the names of. Each share has 2 tomatoes that can be used for slicing or in salads, or could also be used with the salsa pack that is also a part of this weeks share. In the salsa pack you will find tomatoes, purple and red jalapenos, yellow onions, and a head of garlic. All you will need to finish a fresh salsa will be a little freshly squeezed lime juice, some salt to taste, and the cilantro and parsley in the herb bouquet.
Also included in this weeks share are all the fixing you will need to make a great garden salad – salad mix, cucumbers, radishes, carrots, beets, and Rainbow Swiss chard. The summer squashes are starting to come in nicely so there is a mix a yellow and green summer squashes spread out over the shares, a head of cabbage and an herb bouquet that contains parsley, cilantro, and basil. And lastly, this weeks bread is a simple whole wheat loaf.
A big thank you to everyone who passed on the kind thoughts to us last week concerning the death of our little puppy George. It was a hard few days for us with a lot of tears, but we are moving forward! We are glad he was a part of our family for the short time he was around, and we are also glad that his pain and suffering is over. Until next week, enjoy the food and let us know how your salsa turns out!!
