Week 5 2015

Now we’re moving into some real summer food.  With the cool weather it might still be awhile until the tomato avalanche starts, but thanks to a high tunnel hoop house we can at least get some eggplants into your hands this week.

Also you’ll be seeing some red heirloom beans, called Red Swan Bush Beans.  They’re a snap bean with a lovely red hue that taste similar to the green snap beans you are probably used to.  I love their high yields, tenderness (they’re great raw right off the bush), and nice taste.  The color will fade as you cook them.

Here’s everything that is in your box this week:
