In your Produce CSA box this week: Cabbage, pickling cucumbers, yellow squash, zucchini, the last of the Kohlrabi, Green Tomatoes, Green Beans, Collards, French Tarragon, Daikon Radishes (look like white carrots). Full boxes got some Hakauri turnips and Easter Egg radishes until they ran out. Time for Fried Green Tomatoes. Daikon radishes are great in stir frys (taste sort of like a water chestnut).
Here is a great link for recipes for Sweet Pickled Daikon Radishes: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/sweet-pickled-daikon-radish-recipe/index.html

We should have some wax beans ready starting next week and the following week we will have corn and blueberries starting up. We are staying in the garden till dark. The kids are maturing and trying very hard this year, remembering to pick squash daily, harvest everything ready, chopping grass, etc. I'm very proud of them. We have about 500 tomato plants so at some point later in the summer, we should have huge amounts of tomatoes. Plan on canning or freezing some for winter or making spaghetti sauce. Don't ask me why I planted so many. They are one of my passions. I particularly love heirlooms.
