CSA 2022 week 24 distribution

CSA 2022 week 24: eggplant, tomatoes, greens

It’s been cool this past week – chances are that’s a permanent state of affairs, as we head into October. Our box from Beaverland Farms has cucumbers and tomatoes – is that summer’s last gasp? CSA 2022 week 24 brings us produce for our last big salads of the season.

I’m glad that I’ve already put up my tomatoes: this year, I made roasted tomato paste with a peck (12.5 lbs) of Roma tomatoes from a nearby farm stand. I’m not going to be overly ambitious this year, what with sickness in the house. In prior years, we’ve gathered for a Really Big Tomato Crush. You can check out some of my articles here:

But back to my CSA box. This week’s box contains:

  • CSA 2022 week 24 distribution2 small eggplants
  • tomatoes
  • cucumber
  • garlic
  • scallions
  • romaine
  • bok choy
  • mixed greens

I think about how I might use all this good stuff while I’m washing and trimming it. CSA 2022 week 24 has me thinking about warming, hearty food – and besides, we have people in the house who are sick! There’s going to be a lot of soup.

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.
