This weeks farm share was the best yet! Why, you asked? It is tomato season! Our basket was filled with various green, yellow and red heirloom tomatoes. The sweet slicers are a nice change of pace from the large amount of squash we have been receiving for the past month. Although this basket did contain some squash, it is a reasonable amount to eat in a week. I made zucchini bread in order to "get rid" of some of it. I made it extra spicy with added nutmeg and cinnamon and sprinkled sunflower seeds on top. I think I will be "disposing" of squash this way for a while.
My favorite of the tomatoes are the little orange and red sweet ones. You can see them below in the bag to the far left. These tasted just like candy in your mouth. Sweet on the tongue and bursting with flavor when you chomp down. I also always enjoy our bag of potatoes. This week, we received mostly purple potatoes. They taste the same as the regular old brown ones.
That lovely green orb is a personal watermelon. For some strange reason, this baby hasn't made its way to my stomach yet. We had very good intentions of eating her this weekend. We went camping and brought her along. Took her for a post lunch hike and were too full to eat her. Wanted her for dessert by the campfire, and totally forgot. Poor lady. I have high hopes of eating her tonight. Watermelons are girls, right?
I'm excited to pick up another lovely basket this afternoon. Unfortunately, after the the few weeks of abundance, we are back to our regular weekly half share. If I don't get another squash for the rest of the season, I'll be just fine.
