summer CSA, weeks 7 and 8

‘Tis the season for stone fruits! We’ve had plums, peaches, and nectarines crowding the fridge for the past two weeks. We’ve mostly been eating them just as they come, although I’m finding that it’s a little hard to cut segments from stone fruits that don’t like separating from the pits. This was never a problem until I had a small child who needed his fruit cut into segments. And of course all that lovely sticky fruit juice squishes out between his fingers and gets all over everything. Parenting is a messy business.

Week 7 of the CSA: 6 ears of corn, green peppers, peaches, Methley plums, onions, zucchini, tomatoes, cantaloupe, eggs, and bread (Breadery blueberry cornbread).

The peaches were soft, juicy, and ready to eat. As the sign at the CSA said,
10 Peaches
*be gentle, we bruise

Week 8: green beans, nectarines, green peppers, potatoes, beets with beautiful greens, Shiro plums, tomatoes, 6 ears of corn, and Great Harvest “everything” sourdough. It was a value-added week so I picked up a block of Muenster cheese in place of eggs.

I love picking up veggies in Breezy Willow’s new addition, because the breeze moves through the screens and sunlight comes through to dapple the fruits and vegetables.

It’s a beautiful time of year.
