It's possible I get a little over excited about my farm share, but I don't care, because it's awesome! This week was like whoa. Given the squash/cuke choice, I decided to go with zukes because I want more of that soup. There was push for more cucumber soup, too, but we still had a bit in the fridge, so I thought it was zuke's turn. I suppose I could have gone with 2 zukes and 5 cukes, but seriously, I love that soup, plus another baby just arrived, so I will no doubt be delivering some soon.
I could do more kimchi, too, but I think I will end up making some stir fries. Also beet-carrot salad since I saved last week's beets on the assumption that there would be more carrots, woohoo! More kale chips? Will see.
And the plums! What to do… Tadpole ate at least eight of them yesterday (I lost count) but there are dozens and dozens. I feel like I ought to can some. Sort sort of plum jam, perhaps? Maybe also popsicles. Ideas welcome.
- 2 bunches Japanese Turnips
- 2 bunches Baby Bok Choy
- 2 bunches Tuscan Kale
- 2 bunches Carrots
- 2 bunches Onions
- 4 Squash/Zucchini or 10 Pickling Cukes (I took zucchini)
- 4 lbs New Potatoes
- 2 Bunches Basil
- 6 lbs Plums
= 30.8# (whew)
Left this sitting in a tab by accident. In a fit of immediate productivity, by Wednesday I'd already made a giant batch of zucchini-basil soup, a stir fry, and a carrot-beet salad. Plus almond milk, but that had nothing to do with the share. I think from now on, our milk will be homemade. And I didn't even need a nut milk bag! (heheh)
