I’m really enjoying my first CSA subscription ever, from Wissell Farms in Nampa.
Here’s what came this week: Plums, pears, peaches, peppers (not shown: 3 big green peppers, 3 red potatoes and more jalapenos and 6 ears of sweet corn); the personal size watermelon–so cute!, a huge cantaloupe, which already went in the refrigerator. The melons have been really sweet, and we love them nice and cold right out of the fridge.
Shown in the photo, but actually from the neighborhood co-op garden over on 15th Avenue (we live on 12th Avenue): the tomatoes, green beans and summer squash.
In related—and very exciting—news: We rather suddenly have an additional refrigerator in the kitchen! This is a 4.4 cubic foot beauty from Costco. It was installed as a built-in underneath the kitchen island, next to the old fire hydrant (yes, you read that right) which was previously responsible for holding up the countertop (lest dancing break out on the island some fine evening).
The new refrigerator holds all our greens and veggies, and some condiments will probably making their way into the door shelves, coming over from the big fridge little by little. This frees up LOTS of space in the main refrigerator, so that it can be better organized. I hope to do a better job of getting our leftovers eaten because I’ll be able to find them more easily.
