CSA week 8

CSA week 8 brings fresh corn! This is exciting; I thought that the corn wasn’t at all ready yet. Naturally we cooked and ate it the night we brought it home – no sense in letting good corn sit around.

CSA week 8 0721 2018I miss the radishes, but it’s good to see the warm weather produce coming in:

  • red leaf lettuce
  • kohlrabi
  • cucumbers
  • zucchini
  • yellow pattypan squash
  • wax (yellow) beans
  • beets
  • lots of corn

Those yellow beans are just begging to be combined with last week’s pesto, and that’s also a possibility for the zucchini (see this intriguing recipe from Smitten Kitchen). I prefer kohlrabi raw – in thin sticks in a salad with the lettuce and cucumbers, or perhaps in thicker slabs dipped in hummus or garlic scape pesto. The beets might end up in a salad, or perhaps I’ll use them in a red, red smoothie.

What’s your favorite summer vegetable?
