Organics to You – August 2, 2010

by Sherri Koehler on August 2, 2010

We have started to cut back on the weekly boxes. We wisely did not get a box the week we attended OSCON since we ate out most meals. Last week we did get a box, but I was in a rush to just get stuff into the fridge, etc. that I never got it recorded.

That said, here’s today’s box full of goodies:

  • a head of red leaf lettuce
  • spinach
  • rainbow carrots
  • head of garlic
  • 4 zucchini
  • a cucumber
  • green onions
  • green beans
  • blueberries
  • 2 yellow peppers
  • 5 apricots
  • 2 huge grapefruit
  • 3 nectarines

In the fridge:

  • carrots
  • fava beans
  • green beans
  • 2 1/2 cucumbers (including the first from our garden!!)
  • some garlic
  • green & purple cabbage
  • 4 apples
  • broccoli
  • head of cauliflower
  • 1 red & 1 golden beets
  • radishes
  • a pile of lemons
  • 1 small lime
  • 2 nectarines
  • 4 mangoes
  • 3 plucots
  • 1 apricot
  • 2 small daikon
  • several bananas
  • green grapes
  • 2 pints of strawberries
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 yellow onions
  • ginger
  • cherries
  • 2 pints of blueberries
  • basil
The Compost Pail of Shame (what we didn’t use and had to compost):
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • basil
  • bananas
  • some plums
  • green onions

I have managed to post some new recipes recently and am enjoying that a lot. This time of year I tend to make a lot of hearty salads that make for portable dinners for picnics and are great chilled. We also both adore stone fruit and have been having lots of it in salad form. This week there will be a cucumber salad and perhaps gazpacho to use up the several we have. I have been continuing to make lots of stir-fries, particularly with the cabbage and zucchini. I think tonight we’ll be having a green bean stir-fry along with some miso udon soup.
