CSA Week #14

Our CSA box was jam-packed full of goodies this week!  It was almost too heavy to lift to my car - good thing I've been working out lately, right?

Let's check out what we got...

  • Purple and white peppers
  • Sweet Corn
  • Eggplant
  • Watermelon
  • Cucumbers
  • Heirloom Tomatoes
  • Pears
  • Okra
  • Blackberries
I'm loving the fruits!

And we've got one other blogger that's sharing their CSA haul, and that's Sam from Cooking My Way Through My CSA:

1 bunch of beets, 1 cabbage, 1 lb. of cucumbers, 1 bunch of dill, 1 bunch of chard, 1/2 lb. of salad mix, 1 lb. of squash/zucchini, 1 bunch of leeks, 2 lb of peaches, 1 lb sugar plums
Looks like Sam was loaded down too!

Thanks Sam for participating this week, and hope to see more of you sharing next week!

I've got to get ready for our softball tournament tonight, gonna be a double header (hopefully), for a chance at the city tournament! 

***If you guys received a CSA this week, what did you end up getting?  I'd love to have a weekly round-up of your CSA goodies (if you participate in one), or even if you made a weekly visit to your Farmer's market (or even just picked from your own garden!) - I'd love to see the local produce everyone gets!  So feel free to e-mail a snapshot of your goods (as well as your name and blog title (and don't worry if you don't have a blog, your name will be just fine!) as well as a link to your blog) at mtlabor85 (at) yahoo (dot) com and I'll post them in next Thursday's CSA post!


  1. Beautiful and amazing haul....taste bud heaven and also the wonders you can do with some of those.

  2. I am curious to see how you are going to use the white and purple peppers. They look so unusual.

  3. Oh, if farmer's markets count, then I'll join in next week!

  4. What a great CSA box...look at those gorgeous eggplants and that wonderful watermelon!

  5. Yum Peggy! Can't wait to see what you make from this. I'm thinking ratatouille! :-)

  6. Yum! I cooked with eggplant just like that! AMAZING tasting! Your CSA looks incredible! I love summer....

  7. Peggy, lovely vege & fruits. I like the corn - sprinkle with some salt & steam. Brush with some butter and enjoy. If not make corn soup.

  8. Looking at all these fresh goodness, I wish we had a CSA scheme over here! I could so turn all of these into fabulous eats, as I'm sure you did too :-).

  9. From the first picture, I will choose the ladies fingers, looks so attractive and one of the fav for us, must add into our curries.

  10. I think we had the best CSA share so far this past week: Eggplant, squash, spinach, onion, slicing tomato and grape tomatoes, cucumber, purple basil, okra, purple peppers.

    So far I've managed to use most of what I get, which is surprising-slash-exciting!

  11. I don't belong to a CSA, but your gorgeous picture make me want to start.

  12. Another great haul! I'll have to join my local CSA next season!
