Ok, who here is sick of my weekly CSA posts? I usually have good traffic on Mondays and Tuesdays and then it drops off only to come back on Thursdays and Fridays. It's okay, you can tell me when something gets tired and needs some revamping. There are only 4 more weeks of CSA deliveries anyhow. I would be a quitter if I abandoned these posts now. So perhaps you can in the comments section tell me how to make these posts better? I am planning on signing up for the CSA Winter share, so I would rather not bore you all to death throughout the winter.
On that note, I would like to take a moment to think about the future. Anybody can eat locally during the summer months when vacation time is plentiful and everything is in bloom. I think it is harder come fall, because while there is still a bountiful harvest, there is less variety and the veggies are maybe not typical American favorites. I am going to try to continue to eat locally even as the different stalls at the farmer's market shut down. I am scared of winter. What the hell are we going to eat? DH and the Things might finally revolt and shove tater tots down my thoat....
On that note this week we got a cornucopia of veggies: 2 pounds of fingerling potatoes, one head of bok choy, a bunch of beets, one head of lettuce, a bunch of dill, one enormous acorn squash, four hot chiles, 2 bell pepper, 2 beefsteak tomatoes, 2 green zebras (these have been my favorite all season), 25 yellow cherry tomatoes (I chose these over the purple cherry tomatoes) and 40 ground cherries. Ground Cherries are these funny things that look and feel like cherry tomatoes, but they have a husk like tomatillos and they smell like cherries. I haven't the faintest idea what to do with them. Do I eat them raw? Do I saute them? I am stumped. This might require the internet.
Don't forget to tell me off in the comments section ;) Just kidding.
