CSA week 18

CSA week 18: oh, it’s definitely autumn in the farmers’ market. I still see tomatoes and green beans – those will continue until first frost – but turnips, beets, squash, broccoli, and cauliflower dominate the scene. It’s time to finish any preserving I’ve left until the last minute, and then turn my attention to the cooler weather crops.

CSA week 18 0929 2018We have a heavy box this week – some of these items weigh a lot. This week, our box contains:

  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • 1 big butternut squash
  • cauliflower
  • 3 cucumbers
  • 4 beets
  • 2 turnips
  • 2 red pimento peppers
  • big bunch of carrots
  • green beans
  • one huge onion

This week’s box makes me think about:
