CSA Week 4

Welcome to Week 4! And happy Monday. The solstice came and went, and on its beginnings I was up, thanks to little Tertius Barr in utero, to see the most brilliant sunrise I had ever seen. I opened my eyes and gasped at the flaming orange that was flowing into our bedroom. It almost seemed like the outside was on fire. I wished I had enough presence of mind to photograph it, but also, NOT having a camera must have made me appreciate it more, because I'm writing about, after all. The solstice is always special to us. It marks the time when the growing sun energy finally hits its peak and begins to recede. It is a time when we can breathe a little easier. Most of our plants are in the ground and the days are spent maintaining the garden instead of creating it. It's a good feeling. But we still need coffee.

In your share:

Cucumbers! (how we ate these for lunch today: Slice thin. Add a clove of minced garlic, some salt to taste, a few glugs of olive oil and a dash of really good balsamic vinegar. Mix and eat)

Summer Squash

Pac Choi (yeah, we're kind of sick of it too, but we planted a lot this year, so buck up and throw it in another frittata and pretend you're eating spinach or kale)

Salad Mix (no one gets sick of this stuff-once, Joel and I ate a whole pound together for dinner once!)

Arugula- and 31 ways to eat it!


Lemon Balm

Head Lettuce

Beet Greens OR Spinach

Enjoy your share!
