this week's CSA basket

I keep meaning to share about our CSA baskets this summer. Currently, they are absolutely packed, filled to the brim and then some. Here's a photo from this week's basket. Doesn't everything look wonderful?

This week we'll be enjoying green beans, cucumbers, lemon cucumbers, carrots, kale, chard, lettuce, red potatoes, peas, and (ta-da!) tomatoes - though not the ones featured in yesterday's blog post. Those beauties were from my very own garden. But back to the basket: we also received fresh parsley and basil. We'll see how much we can get through before the weekend!

Needless to say, I'm not buying many vegetables from the farmer' market these days. I've got all I can keep up with from our weekly CSA baskets. This summer, we've also been enjoying cabbage, cherries, raspberries, and golden potatoes. It's been so much fun!
