CSA week 13: the first tomatoes!

CSA week 13 2020 0807

CSA week 13 2020: You can tell it’s summer because of the sudden abundance. My basket was overflowing this week, and among the goodies are the very first tomatoes from the farm. It was a long cool wet spring, which delayed tomato season by about a month. I hope we’re about to make up for lost time, because for me, tomatoes are the real taste of summer.

CSA week 13 2020 0807CSA week 13 veggies:

  • large bag of young lettuce
  • yellow summer squash
  • baby beets
  • pickling cucumbers
  • cherry tomatoes of many colors
  • purple and yellow beans
  • large bag of wild greens
  • basil
  • radishes

I’m seriously tempted to make a batch of dill beans today because we have so many. I think I’ll choose the yellow ones – the brine may do interesting things to their color. I might be sneaky and put them up in a green jar!
