CSA week 10: summer veggies

After a week’s hiatus for 2nd planting (did you know farmers are like hobbits? There’s 1st planting, yes, but what about 2nd planting?) CSA week 10 2020 starts summer distributions: crops that love warm or hot weather, often in great abundance. If you’re curious about the different day, Dancing Meadows Homestead asked me to fetch my veggies on Friday this week, instead of Wednesday.

And I was right: because it’s hot now, there will be no more peas. But we have green beans, and are starting to get squash, and surely summer tomatoes aren’t that far away, even if it was a long cool spring.

  • a large bag of young mixed lettuce
  • 2 ‘8-ball’ round zucchini
  • 1 yellow summer squash
  • a quart of green beans
  • pak choi
  • kale

Of course there will be many salads. Last night, I made a Cobb type salad, using some of those splendid greens, topped with lines of stuff from the fridge: chunks of cold leftover chicken, chopped red bell pepper, bacon, avocado. What will I do with the rest of this lovely box of produce? I do have some ideas, from my own blog as well as others.
