surrealestate: (Sentient Broccoli)
Week 15
  • 4 lbs Tomatoes
  • 2 Butternut Squash
  • 2 bunches Rabe
  • 2 heads Cabbage
  • 2 bunches Arugula
  • 4 Zucchini
  • 4 Eggplant
  • 12 Spartan Apples
    = 36 lbs

+ My bread share: A pair French baguettes

And from a neighbor:
+ 1 Asian Eggplant
+ 4 assorted Peppers
+ half a giant Cabbage
+ 2 Leeks

I hate to even admit how little I've cooked this past week. At least today I made a giant shredded salad/slaw with cabbage, beets, and carrots. It felt so good to eat a big bowl of raw vegetables. Poor Rainbow has been sleeping so poorly that I'm too tired to motivate myself to do much of anything. During the day, she's one the happiest babies you could ever meet, but at night... eek.

Oops, forgot to hit Post. This is from last week. There has been lots of yum including more zucchini noodles. This time, I went more traditional with a curry peanut sauce. Good stuff. Made a bunch of refrigerator pickles with last week's cucumbers (sorry, I was lazy). The extra box of tomatoes was made into much roasted sauce, some of which went to ushering in pizza baking season. So it's not *all* bad when it gets a little cooler.

Made a glorious celery root soup. I hope we get more so I can make more. Finally got around to freezing some of the pepper excess, too, which is nice to have for the off season, when peppers are surprisingly expensive. I need to freeze the celery tops, too -- perfect for soup!

I still have almost all the turnips left. They keep for a while so there's no pressure, and I didn't feel particularly inspired. But I'll make some mashed turnips soon if nothing more interesting comes to mind.

Apples continue to get et with glee, and last night I made apples & honey muffins, which turned out great. There will certainly be more of those.

  • 4 Zucchini
  • 4 lbs Purple-Top Turnips
  • 8 ears Corn
  • 6 lbs Cortland Apples
  • 2 bunches Rabe
  • 2 Celery Root (+Celery tops!)
  • 2 lbs Kentucky Wonder Beans
  • 12 Peppers
    = 35#

  • 8 ears Corn
  • 2 bunches Radishes
  • 2 bunches Arugula
  • 2 lbs Yellow Wax Beans
  • 2 bunches Bouquet Lettuce
  • 10 Cubanelle Peppers
  • 2 Eggplant
  • 10 lbs Tomatoes(!!)

Having put last week's tomatoes into Indian food and bruschetta, I made a big batch of straight-up roasted tomato sauce this time around. Or a small batch, since the yield is kinda tiny relative to beginning tomato mass, but whatever, it's good. Too swamped to write more.

And so there was more pot pie and more bruschetta and of course straight-up amazingly delicious corn. Also mashed turnips with carrots. No soup yet, but soon. Most of us are sick right now which sucks big time, and today's big project is trying to deal with a flat tire.
  • 2 bunches Carrots
  • 2 bunches Japanese Turnips (+greens)
  • 8 ears Corn
  • 2 pints Cherry Tomatoes
  • 4 lbs (Red) Tomatoes
  • 2 lbs Potatoes
  • 2 bunches Parsnips
  • 2 bunches Celery Root (+tops (i.e., "celery"))
