CSA basket: Week of 8/1

Back from fishing on vacation
We're back.

Even farmers take vacations... though we had never taken one in July before. The CSA was in good hands with our favorite, trusted neighbor who had volunteered with us for the past 4 summers. But to see the weeds when we returned! And now all of this rain (which we love, but would have loved a whole lot more if it came in April or May)!

Kids in the forest of tomatoes
We are in prime tomato season now. And we harvested 100 pounds of them before this rainy weather to spare them from splitting or water-logging. I pretty much put tomato on everything right now. Even my oatmeal in the morning (with a fried egg and some spicy kimchi or sriracha). Enjoy them while they last!

Expect the following in this week's basket:
Tons of tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, basil, parsley, cilantro, kale, squash, cucumbers or green beans, eggplant, peppers, radishes, lettuce
