Tuesday evening means delicious, vibrant fresh food. We belong to a CSA (community supported agriculture) and all our fresh fruits and vegetables that we don't grow in the yard come from a local Long Island farm called The Golden Earthworm. Once a week it is delivered to a drop off point where everyone picks up their share for the week. Its always a surprise what you'll get, depending on whats in season and whats abundant that week. Plus, I barely ever have to go to the supermarket. Its all chosen, picked and dropped off at someones house near mine.
As the summer wears on the foods change with the season, and right now its all swiss chard, juicy peaches, eggplant and ripe zucchini. Sometimes there are things in the spread that I can't even name! Luckily they provide a guide, and even some recipes.
A bouquet of bright chard and a sweet peach, nothing better!There are nectarines, green peppers and lettuce too.Rich is staying with me for a few days and we have lots of plans for cooking (and eating push pops)We recycle the boxes from store bought tomatoes so that the ones from the farm don't get crushed, and those cucumbers are actually from my backyard
