In Your Share (July 27th edition)

IMG_5695The first of the heirloom tomatoes are in the share the week! With this spell of hot weather we should have a wide variety coming soon…
* Moskvich – Many time winner of the Portland Farmers Market Tomato Taste Test
* Azoychka – my all time favorite yellow tomato
* Prudens Purple – a tasty Brandywine type with pretty purple shoulders and flesh

CSA Members can access lots of recipes for tomatoes and all the other veggies in your share at Cook With What You Have. Check your email for the password to the site and enjoy your 24/7 access to recipe inspiration!

This week your share may include…

  • Basil: Yum!
  • Green, Purple & Yellow Beans: All of the different colors cook up just like green beans. Unfortunately, the purple ones actually turn green when you cook them so is you love the color consider using them raw. The color combo makes a beautiful crudite plate!
  • Cucumbers: Sweet & tasty slicers
  • Eggplant: Just a sampler of Japanese eggplant, more coming soon!
  • Garlic: Nice heads of Music hardneck garlic.
  • Lettuce: looking forward to more summer salad
  • Onions: Yellow onions
  • Potatoes: Beautiful purple potatoes 
  • Summer Squash: Nice mix of green & yellow zucchini, crookneck and patty pan.

Coming soon…Sweet Summer Carrots!
