It has been an odd summer. My farmer was having problems with his web site, so I was unable to place orders for quite a while. I also have a hard time ordering by 9:00 AM the day before the pick up. I tried ordering several days ahead of time, but it wouldn’t accept my order too many days before the drop off. I miss my old CSA where the farmer dropped off what he had and all I had to do was pick it up. Sigh.
This week we got:
5 lbs of apples;, 3 lbs of potatoes, 2 lbs of beets, swiss chard,, basil,, italian parsley, bell peppers, and leeks.
Tomorrow I hope to roast the bell peppers so I have them for later, and I definitely see some potato leek soup on our menu this week. If I get ambitious, maybe I can get those beets pickled. But I’ve been in one of those kind of pouty, “I want someone else to take care of me for a while ” moods today. So the most ambitious thing I’ve done today is roast some pumpkin. Good thing today is Sunday and I can hide my lack of productivity behind watching lots of football. 🙂
I haven’t seen any cranberries listed on the pick sheet yet, and I am starting to get concerned. Thanksgiving is only 3 weeks away! Kirsten at Farm Fresh Feasts posted an amazing cranberry sauce that I really want to try this year.
