CSA Box -July 8, 2010

In the Produce CSA boxes this week: Corn, Tomatoes: Roma and Slicing,

Field Peas: Pink Eye/Purple Hull

It is sure hot and dry here. I don't think we'll have any more corn. We are really struggling with the garden right now. Vines drying up, the worms taking over the corn, grubs and fire ants trying to eat the potatoes. The potatoes in your box were just dug 3 days ago. They are fresh and might be a little soft. They aren't nearly as pretty as those from the other field earlier in the season. The sun is scalding some of the tomatoes.

Here is a good recipe for the thai eggplants. You can google Thai eggplants for more recipe ideas. We are eating a lot of stirfrys and also roasting veggies and making frittatas w/ lots of veggies in them.

Thank you for bearing with us during this tough weather. The kids are really working long, hard hours in the garden. They work until about 10 am in the garden and then have to come out because it is too hot to be out there. Then they go back in from 7pm until pitch black dark nearly every night. Hopefully, we'll get some rain and things will be better in a few weeks.
