I apologize for being seriously behind with posting about our CSA, but life happens, right. Due to lack of motivation, you won’t be getting a list of crate contents like you usually do…just enjoy looking at yummy veggies.
13th CSA: we didn’t get a 13th, because we were out of town and as a result, you get no picture!
beautiful green zebras
16th CSA: This was a hectic week and I went grocery shopping on the same day…there just wasn’t time (nor did I have the energy) to unpack it all out on the table for pictures. Sorry.
I've been needing some extra greens
Twins, I say! Twins!
And there you have it folks. You are visually caught up with what we’ve been eating from the farm. Yay!
You should of seen the salsa we made!
What is all that:
12 Various Tomatoes
1 Green Bell Pepper
2 Heads Garlic
Sm. bunch Green Onions
Med. bunch Basil
Lg. head Red Leaf Lettuce
Lg. head Arrowhead Cabbage
.5 lb Carrots
(not pictured, but donated) 8 ears Corn
(not pictured, but donated) Med. bunch of Rainbow Chard
There will not be a 13th CSA, because we will be out of town in Massachusettes for the Northeast Unschooling Conference. When we get back, we’ll be picking up the 14th CSA…just a note, so that you all don’t think I forgot how to count! Oh, and in case you wonder what will happen to our crate of goodness while we are gone…this time, Hoi Polloi will pick it up and use it to make nummy food for you — go eat it or at least have a cup of coffee!
Well, it’s been not quite a month since the last update on my little fledgling of a garden. Where I once had tomato plants, I now have tomato trees!
yay, we're huge, but we don't have any tomatoes...
I'm getting big and I might just make a zucchini after all
the slugs have eaten almost all my leaves, but I have this one lone pepper for you, but you might need to pick it soon, because it threatens to topple me over
sorry I'm so small, but tomorrow you'll see both my flowers open and a bee flitting about both of them -- I promise to make you a baby acorn squash
Sorry, about the quality of these pictures, but it was raining & I was shaking. The guys who were not pictured are still there, except for the Lime Basil, which was used for some pesto. The slugs have decimated my pepper plants. In fact, I picked about half a dozen off in order to not get them in the photographs!
This year I have two things working against me with the garden (besides the slugs)…I didn’t get seedlings into the ground until about one month AFTER I should have, but I didn’t want to worry about things being trampled when we had our huge ice cream, jazz, waterballoon & champagen party. The second thing is that I haven’t seen that many bees. This is mainly due to the fact that I don’t have a lot growing this year in the garden or the yard. But, with a little luck, when we get back from the Northeast Unschooling Conference, we’ll have some baby tomatoes & maybe a zucchini or two.
