Gettin' fresh … in Northern Nevada

Great Basin Basket CSA, Week 6 (08/15/13)



What’s in this week’s Veggie Box?    Take a look:

(all organic)  yellow canary melon, Sarah’s choice melon, seedless watermelon, mixed summer squash, islander peppers, slicing cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, globe eggplant, bobcat tomatoes, corn, parsley from Mewaldt Organics and green beans from River Bend Farms



I’ll go ahead and apologize for the crappy, blurry photos.   I must have been excited about veggies and didn’t take the time to do a better job.   Oh, well.   Better luck next week.




What am I going to cook with all of these fine goodies?    Well, we are going camping this weekend so the squash, eggplant and corn are going straight on the grill.   I plan to eat most of the watermelon straight off the rind while sitting on the beach and, yup, if I do find a seed … I’m just gonna spit it right out on the ground, hillbilly-style.    This box is pure summer and I’m going to enjoy it as such.

I haven’t posted any recipes or cooking adventures lately because we haven’t really done anything exciting with the fruits and veggies other than just eat them.   Raw.   Au naturale.    I love a good salad or to just throw some veggies on the BBQ with a steak.   You can only post so many pictures of that on a blog.    Uh … I guess there was a little bit of bacon involved in a green bean cooking incident.   I could have posted that.   You can never see enough bacon, right?

What are you making cooking plans for right now?

  2. Blurry or not, those veggies look delicious to me.
    I’ve got piles and piles and piles of tomatoes from the farm share and from the garden, so I will be canning crushed tomatoes . . . sometime. I need to mentally wrap my head around it and get started then I’ll be fine. I want to do it while my daughter (and co-canner) is home to help out.

    • My hubby loves tomato sandwiches so it is hard to keep an excess of maters at my house!
