Wow! Another beautiful weekend, and another beautiful box!  Thanks for the great meal and games of bocce ball at the annual farm potluck on Saturday!  If you have questions about the contents of your box, you can just ask in the comment section of this post.  In your box this week:

  1. Heirloom Tomatoes
  2. Broccoli
  3. Beans
  4. Kohlrabi
  5. Onions
  6. Zucchini/Summer Squash
  7. Cuke-nuts  — look like little watermelons, taste like super crunchy cucumbers.
  8. Beets with Greens (eat them both!)
  9. Kale — Red Russian variety
  10. Sweet Peppers
  11. Hot Pepper — the one with the rubber band around it.  Poblano, Ancho, and Cayenne varieties.
  12. Dill — one young seed head, one dried seed head.  If you can’t use them both this week, rub the brown dried seeds into a jar for winter use.
  13. Parsley
  14. Basil — maybe the last of the year?  Basil is the most susceptible to frost damage, so it will be the first to go when the nights start getting cold.
  15. Nasturiums —  flowers and lily-pad leaves, all parts edible.
  16. Eggplant — the gourmet non-bitter Rosa Bianca variety, enough for most people, there will be plenty more in the next couple weeks.
