Summer 2015 CSA, farm stand and Penzey's
Monday's CSA pick up: watermelon, 5 apples, 5 small peaches, sm bag arugula, pint prepicked cherry tomatoes
leeks, carrots, 2 small red peppers,1 lb tomatoes, 3 chilli peppers. Sigh . . .where's Summer's bounty? I continue to feel that we are an afterthought, all of tomatoes were already soft. : (
On Monday, I stopped at my impromptu farmer stand, grabbing 2 doz eggs I preordered and organic cukes @ 25 cents each
Saturday, I returned, getting more cukes and some sauce tomatoes as I knew that I'd be cooking down the remaining ones from the CSA. They didn't want to charge me, but finally said just pay $1.
Monday was my first day back at work and right afterwards, I went to Penzey's as I had preplanned, to take advantage of a freebie coupon for pepper, and to replenish my orange peel. This cpn required a $10 purchase-something new.
