What's in the box

Tomatoes, Gravenstein Applies, Cukes, Zukes, Melons Galore! Hale's Best and Rocky Ford Cantaloupes, Watermelon, and Collective Farm Woman Melon, potatoes, peppers, chives, rosemary, flowers and eggs. If you box has an egg tag, please pick up your eggs from Mike.

Rosemary Potatoes
1 sack of potatoes, washed and quartered
2 tablespoons chopped rosemary
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
Salt and 1/2 tablespoon coarse-cracked black pepper
1/2 cup olive oil
In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook potatoes until just tender; drain well. In a large bowl toss potatoes with remaining ingredients.

Transfer to a baking sheet and roast at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes until browned and fragrant.

Eggs and Vegetables

2 tablespoons olive oil
 + 2 T. Butter
4 peppers, seeded and sliced1 medium sized onions, sliced
2 or 3 potatoes washed and cubed
2 medium sized zucchini, sliced into rounds

2 big ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded, chopped
Chives, washed and chopped or 1 onion

2 tablespoons rosemary or Basil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

6 fresh eggs

Grated parmesan cheese

Heat the olive oil in a big skillet that has a cover over a medium heat. Add the potates and cook for about 4 minutes. add the peppers and onions and cook them for about 8 minutes, until the peppers are almost soft. Add the zucchini, tomatoes, if you're using chives (add them now) and cook for about 10 minutes, or until all the vegetables are soft. Add salt to taste.
With the back of a spoon, create 6 indentations in the vegetables. Carefully crack the eggs in the indentations. Don’t let the eggs touch the bare bottom of the pan or the sides or they will burn or stick. Add basil or rosemary. Turn the heat down to medium low, cover the eggs and vegetables, and simmer them until the whites of the egg are set, about 6-8 minutes. Sprinkle salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese over the eggs, and serve immediately.

Above: Banana Squash conquering the world, one structure at a time. God I love vines! Right Scarlet Runner Beans in all their glory. Next year, I'm going to plant a plethora of these. These are just the seed stock. Have a good week.

On another note: Leo and I have decided not to raise the price of the box this year. It will remain at $25. Thanks all of you for your continued support of the farm.
