CSA Summer 2012 - The Goods - Week 12

This week was unusual, and I've definitely become confused between which goods are from our farmshare haul and which were bought there at the farm during pickup.  That is so convenient, but I think it encourages me to misconstrue the actual CSA contents.  Bear with me and just look at some pretty produce. 

Peaches, to give away. 

Red potatoes that feel like they're all about potato salad, but I think will become breakfast potatoes.

Salad greens and salad greens. 

One little eggplant. 

I am constantly surprised at how much onion I go through.  You'd think I'd adjust and stock up.  Nope. 

Basil that's prettier than the little brown leaves I'm growing myself. 



Exciting blue cheese. 

A pepper. 

When Sous Chef Brian said these were green tomatoes, I asked if that meant they were underripe or they were supposed to be green.  When he shrugged, I bit into the smallest one like it was an apple, all Iron Chef style and discovered it was just supposed to be green. 

Green beans, but this purple one scared the heck out of me at first.
