CSA - September 9 - P&P
What's in the Box?
Strawberries, Grapes, Melons, Cukes (last of) Zukes, tomatoes, peppers, tomatillos, green beans, corn, a few eggplants, eggs and flowers.
This week's special gift: Fruit Salsa
About that corn: This was a new corn for us, it's called "White out", Leo is renaming it Wipe out. 75 plants, only 50 ears of corn and all of them half ears, what's up with that? Well, we won't be planting that one again! Although very small, they taste pretty good, eat soon, corn sugar turns to starch very quickly. This will be the last corn until October. Of course with the Fall Season, it's anyone's guess what will happen.
In a "normal" year, the first frost is never before Halloween. Just in case, I'm planting peas, you never know, a long mild fall and we could have them.
I'll post some recipes for eggplant and peppers very very soon. I'm in the kitchen with tomatoes...
