CSA 2009: Week 5

This week I get the entire share, as Paul and Danielle are out of town. I picked out a bunch of kale, some rainbow chard, and some squash — three small summer squash and two zucchini. I’m not sure exactly what I’m doing with most of it yet. I have decided that I am going to blanch and freeze the kale, as it’s unlikely I’ll get to all these greens within the next day or so.

While I was at the market, I also picked up some green beans and two really interesting peppers – tequila sweet bell peppers, which are purple! I keep looking at the tomatoes but it’s just been so cool this summer that there’s not much yet, other than expensive heirlooms.
