CSA week 13

Wow! I can't believe I only have a few weeks left of the summer CSA! It has been an extremely fast summer this year. I think that as I get older, they only get faster. Our local schools start up tomorrow, so today is kind of the last hurrah as far as summer activities go. Then things will quiet down quite a bit when Emma Jack and I venture out to do things :-)

We weren't entirely sure we would have our CSA share pickup on Monday due to the hurricane, but even though Long Meadow Farm currently is without power, they were able to get our share baskets ready. There was a huge tree that fell right next to their house, literally about a foot from the greenhouse attached to it. Luckily everyone is fine, and they will have extra fire wood for the winter :-)

Without further ado! CSA Week 13!

Tomatoes
Anaheim Peppers
Onions
Cucumbers
Zuchinni
Summer Squash
Delicata Squash
Kale
Swiss Chard
2 bags of Green Beans

Unfortunately, no jalapenos, so I am going to have to figure out how to make my salsa without them...I guess I can use a little more of the anaheim peppers...it won't really be spicy though. Maybe some chipotle seasoning? Any ideas?

I have placed an order for 100 pounds of tomatoes from the local fish and seafood guy (his dad has a farm and brings the produce in to sell at the store). And I think I am going to just can them as crushed tomatoes. Easiest option.
