This week’s box includes:
- Approximately 25 canning tomatoes
- 10 assorted heirloom tomatoes
- 8 apples
- 1 bunch of kale
- 1 carnival squash
- 1 eggplant
- 2 green bell peppers
- 10 ears of corn
Eggplant. We saw these growing when we toured the farm a few weeks ago.
A carnival squash. Mr. Kretschmann’s weekly email said that this squash is similar to an acorn squash, but with white and yellow spots and much richer texture. He recommends cutting it in half, scooping out the seeds and baking, covered, until tender.
Kale, which we are for dinner tonight. I really cannot get enough kale.
Basil and cilantro. I haven’t used my tomatillos from last week yet, so some salsa verde is in order.
As always, stay tuned to see the fate of these veggies over the coming week.
