CSA week 14

CSA week 14 0901 2018

The first day of September also marks CSA week 14. It’s strange to think that in only a few weeks we’ll have to say goodbye to the amazing summer produce. But not yet!

CSA week 14 0901 2018We’re not quite at the peak of tomato season; I’m guessing that’ll be next week. Today, this week’s box holds:

  • 1 huge honeydew melon
  • a normal cantaloupe
  • 1 head celery
  • 3 big Beefsteak-style tomatoes
  • 4 cute little red peppers
  • 8 ears fresh corn
  • a big bunch kale
  • 2 yellow summer squash
  • 1 medium zucchini

The weather’s been hot and humid, so melons are a natural for those who love them (here, that’s just some of us.) I know there’s cooler weather on the way, though. I’m planning a pot of ratatouille this weekend – that will use up the yellow and green squash.

I have more ideas inspired by this week’s box of produce:
