It looks like this is the third-to-last CSA box for the season. I’m sad because we’ll soon miss seeing our Amish friends each week, and we won’t be getting fresh produce regularly. But – most of all – I’m sad because this means pleasant weather is just about over. But for three more weeks at least, we’ll ignore the impending winter and enjoy all the beautiful colors and flavors that have been developing since spring.
This week’s box includes:
- a loaf of freshly-baked bread (it was still warm in the bag when we got home)
- a yellow onion
- a pumpkin
- four bell peppers: two red, two green
- six large red potatoes
- a jar of pickles
- a quart of cherry tomatoes
- a dozen ears of corn
- one large and one small eggplant
We have *ahem* already eaten our half of the bread. DH and the girls polished it off and I was lucky to get half a slice. Our portion of the cherry tomatoes are about wiped out, too. They are sweet as candy and S5 is eating them as such.
