Farm Fresh to You CSA Box – Week of 7/28/09

This week’s CSA box was fairly simple and good. Only a few little squashes were spoiled. Not much more to comment about, so here’s the list:

  • 2 lb heirloom tomatoes – We’re finally reaching tomato season! These were pretty decent. I’m still waiting for the dry-farmed early girl tomatoes to show up at Dirty Girl at the farmer’s market. Nothing beats those.
  • 2 Red Star Krimson Pears – These were the highlight of this week’s produce box. They’re fairly average pears, with a bit of a floral taste. But they look a bit funny – Much of their stem is actual pear flesh, so they look like they’ve got little bird-shaped heads peering out of them.
  • 1 Honeydew – It’s big. Smells ripe. I should cut this up soon.
  • 1 lb summer squash – Some of this went onto pizza with goat cheese, basil and a few of those heirloom tomatoes. The pizza tasted good, but making the pizza itself was a huge disaster. I don’t really want to talk about that right now.
  • 1 bunch basil – The thought was nice, but it wilted beyond recognition before we could use it.
  • 1 lb Yellow Onions – Small. Good.
  • 1/2 lb Gypsy Peppers – I’ve been eating these plain.
  • 1/2 lb Lemon Cucumbers
