Gettin' fresh … in Northern Nevada

Summer CSA, Week Eleven

Even though the nights are getting chilly, the days are still warm and the harvest continues …  what’s in this week’s CSA?


For the veggie share we have lots of tomatoes and even a couple more pretty heirloom ones, lovely purple basil (drool), jalapeno peppers and a big bell pepper, eggplant/ughplant, THREE different kinds of green beans, potatoes, summer squash, garlic and two nice looking yellow onions.

For the fruit share, the big box has peaches, pears and apples.   And, my helper in the photo is eating the raspberries and grapes.   He snatched those up the minute I walked in the door!


I’m thinking about trying to remember one of my Grammy’s old recipes for green beans with new potatoes in the slow cooker with a nice, salty ham hock.    Yup.   That sounds like a meal plan to me!   What’s on your meal plan for this week?

  1. I haven’t tried purple basil. Looks great. I love it when my kids gobble things up from my CSA box.

    I’m visiting from the CSA link up. Nice to meet you.

    • Nice to meet you. I’m pretty proud that my three year old yells “yay, the veggie box is here!” That’s a good Momma moment. 🙂

  3. Nice haul! Believe it or not, I am jealous of your eggplant. We used all of ours in a pasta this week (with basil, sundried tomatoes, and feta), but I’d love to try out Smitten Kitchen’s recipe for baked orzo with mozzarella and eggplant.

    • Good suggestion! I gave away the ughplant to a friend this week — she says she loves it!
