CSA 2022 week 16: cucumbers, peppers, beets

It’s August – where has the time gone? It’s CSA 2022 week 16 already. Our farmers at Beaverland Farms have filled our box with more good stuff this week, including the first two bell peppers. We have more tomatoes, and a lush bunch of chard, as well as multicolor beets.

CSA 2022 week 16 distributionThis week’s box brings us:

  • cherry tomatoes
  • green bell peppers
  • cucumbers
  • fennel
  • garlic
  • basil
  • rainbow chard
  • a slender little eggplant
  • a variety of beets

As usual, I think about how I might use all this good stuff while I’m washing and trimming it. Looks like CSA 2022 week 16 will be heavy on salads, which is perfect for our hot and humid weather. I’ve even found some ‘noodle’ dishes where the cucumbers ARE the noodles! Here are some of my ideas – including a chocolate cake enriched with shredded beets! Don’t knock it, that’s one good cake.


Follow the season with me, and I’ll show off my CSA box of the week, including ideas of how I might use all the good stuff. Feel free to chime in with comments or questions.
