7/29/10 CSA SHARE: What we got, and what I took home

This is what I got in my box, and this is what I went home with:

Zucchini – 2 pcs
Red Onions – 2 pcs.…………1 hd. cabbage
Long Peppers – 2 pcs
Green Peppers 1 – 2 pcs
Yukon Gold Potatoes – 3 lbs
Parsley – 1 bun………………..1 bun. kale
Cucumber – 1 pc
Red Kale – 1 bun
Green Beans – .3 lb
Cabbage – 1 hd
Garlic – 2 hds

I would have traded the onions and the potatoes for more kale, but,  despite the fact that there was a lot of kale in the trade box, most of it was very holey, and I did not think that would make for luscious kale chips, so I only came away with two bunches, which I will do up tomorrow night.

I did trade the onions for another head of cabbage. (I am in sauerkraut mode this week – the first batch will be ready tomorrow night — and I want to try some new flavors, so small heads like I got will be perfect for small jars of flavored sauerkraut.

I have sent a message to the farm asking about the green peppers.  I do trust my farm, but aren’t we told that green peppers are unripe? (The farm knows about me, i.e., I am a raw vegan and I write about them and talk about raw food issues, so I am looking forward to their answer — will relay it here as soon as it comes through-– I have asked them to tell me, if in fact *green* is the ripe color of these peppers, what the actual *name* of the peppers is)
