Hi Folks! Welcome to week 12 of your CSA! We had a really great Fourth of July and hope the same for everyone!
We made some hamburgers with some ground meat from Reyer Farms and added a slice of a striped german heirloom tomato and it was almost double the size of the bread and beef patty! So juicy and delicious. We also sliced some eggplant and threw it on the grill, then put the grilled eggplant on our burgers. It was so good and creamy that I didn't even have to put cheese on the burger.
If you haven't seen this link on our Facebook page, here is a link that the Clarion Ledger posted of a short video of how we use the water wheel planter. Peppers were being planted in the video, and it is neat to think that now you are able to enjoy this great bounty.
Watermelons are getting close to being ready. We cut into one the other day and it was about 90% ripe.
We hope everyone has a great week and enjoys the bounty of this week's box:
1. Bell Peppers
2. Carrots or Okra
3. Yellow Onions
4. Beefsteaks Tomatoes
5. Cherry Tomatoes
6. Heirloom Tomatoes
7. Lemon Cucumbers
9. Anaheim Peppers- great mild- medium heat chili with a rich flavor makes this a family favorite! Its large size makes it a very versatile pepper. Really nice to stuff or make a mild salsa with it.
10. Pickling Cucumbers
