Finally, the rain came. They said it was coming and it did. The growers at City Commons are more than happy, we are back in business. Let’s just hope it stays wet. Of course the subject was brought up while we were packing boxes today and we realized something spectacular. Seeds that we had planted long ago, forgotten about and planted over have started to grow again. Luis said some seeds she sowed in March are sprouting amongst her broccoli. As for me, my basil, which I had given up on, is coming up! Tons of little green leaves are sprouting two-by-two. For you all, that means our fall crops are coming right along so you will be able to enjoy our harvests into the cooler months.
In this week’s box:
Big tomatoes (Heirloom in most cases)
Herb Bouquets (Winter savory, thyme, marjoram, rosemary, basil, sage, oregano and mint)
Eggplant or Peppers
Try roasted tomatoes with rosemary and garlic over pasta or brown rice.
Try making parsley pesto with plenty of lemon and a little bit of anchovy.
Try cutting your summer squash lengthwise, scooping out the seeds with a spoon and filling with mixed herb and garlic goat cheese. Bake in the oven at 375 until done.
What ever you choose to do with your veggies, enjoy!
