Bi-weekly Veggie Fest #9

The season seems to be wrapping up. I’m guessing we’re in for a lot of winter squashes and pumpkins in the next few weeks, but not much else. The pickup this week was full of peppers, including one that I’d never heard of before, the Joe Pepper. Hmm.. no idea. The picture above is the board that hangs in the cow-print tent each week. It shows which items and how many are available for each share.

Here’s the take this week. I forgot to weigh it:

1- 2 honey bears from the farm beehives. (Mmm… fresh honey!)
2- 1 Sweet Lighting squash

3- 1 quart of potatoes
4- 1 squash (I chose Zucchini this time)
5- 1 eggplant
6- 1 onion
7- 4 banana peppers
8- 2 bell peppers
9- 1 Joe pepper
10- 6 jalepenos
11- 2 chili peppers
12- 1 dozen eggs

I spent way too much time at the market yesterday. In addition to my CSA box, I was looking for secret ingredients for the Hill Street Hoedown chili cook-off this weekend. Take note, Elder’s Quorum Presidency. You’ve been warned. šŸ˜‰
