Week 17 of Harmony Valley Farm‘s CSA (blog) contained the following:

  • Yellow onions,
  • Italian garlic,
  • Green beans,
  • Edamame,
  • Sweet corn,
  • Tomato variety bag: You’ll have a mix that could include Carolina Gold (yellow), a variety of black tomatoes, Copia (striped heirloom type), Rose (pink heirloom type) and some red slicing tomatoes.
  • Grape tomatoes,
  • Carrots,
  • Squash,
  • Cucumbers,
  • Watermelon,
  • Melon,
  • Poblano peppers,
  • Jalapeños,
  • Bell pepper,
  • Amaranth,
  • Salad Mix,
  • Eggplant, and
  • Cauliflower

As the veggies have gotten more familiar, we’ve been able to eat a lot more of them in any given week.  We ate pretty much everything this week.  Last weekend we actually bought a bunch of small cucumbers and pickled them!  Hopefully you’ll be seeing more about this later.

This week we took part in Harmony Valley’s Produce Plus program.  They just started offering it this week, but you are able to purchase quantities of certain vegetables that they have a lot of sitting around the farm.  Most of them are “seconds” which have minor defects that prevent them from being sold on the market.  Instead of letting them go to waste Harmony Valley is allowing their members to purchase them at reasonable rate. We bought 25 pounds of tomatoes for $25. Yikes!   We hope to spend some time this weekend canning them.

Wish us luck!
