CSA week 19: chard, greens, and green tomatoes

CSA week 19 2020 0918

CSA week 19 2020: big green tomatoes this week, due to be ripened on the counter. Our farmer tells us that this year, they’re just not ripening quickly: they’re starting to show cracks, so they’re being harvested now. The weather isn’t on our side, either; we’ve been flirting with freezes at night.

Look at the abundant greens! Our salads will definitely shift to show the new season. I’m thinking thin slices of apple or pear, toasted nuts or pepitas, sweet potato, cauliflower, lentils. We won’t need crunchy and cooling once the thermometer drops!

CSA week 19 2020 0918This week in our basket:

  • big bunch Swiss chard
  • 2 quarts mixed young lettuce
  • 1 quart arugula
  • 2 yellow summer squash
  • 3 big green heirloom tomatoes
  •  a wonderful bunch of dill

ideas for the week ahead
