Weekly Local Booty - Garden Grub, CSA, and Farmer's Market - August 8, 2009
Posted Aug 09 2009 10:11pm
Yesterday was one of the hottest days of the year, so that made our trip to the farmer's market a bit less pleasant than usual, but the variety available at market during the height of summer makes all the sweating and heat worth it. We even got a bit more garden grub this week. I think our chiles are finally starting to take off, though our tomatoes are suffering horribly from "brown thumb" and too much rain.
Anyways, check out our garden grub for this week:
12 more ripe cayennes to add to our ristra!
3/4 lb. Clemson Spineless Okra. We are going to have some fried okra with brunch and I am also making an Asian dish tonight I think some of this might find its way into.
And onto week 13 of our DanJo Farms quarter CSA share:
Starting from the bottom right: long green beans, a zucchini, a cucumber, a yellow pepper, an eggplant, a green bell pepper, and beet greens.
Here is this week's farmer's market haul. I don't remember exactly what this ran us, but I know it was less than $30.
Starting from the bottom right: epazote, 6 jalapenos, a quart of spicy, beautiful, and perfectly rip New Mexico chiles, 3 red bell peppers, 6 ears of sweet corn, yukon gold potatoes, red boiler onions, two yellow onions, and 4 tomatoes. Not pictured is a bunch of cilantro that for some reason didn't make it into the photo.
We have some tasty eats in the works this week.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend - I wish it weren't almost over!
