I was a tiny bit sad to go out to dinner that night, however, because we got such great produce in our CSA box this week.
Beans are a serious staple in our house and I love getting fresh shelling beans. They don’t take that long to pop out of their pods. The only bummer is that the beautiful pink pattern fades when they’re cooked.
Those crazy cukes are actually West Indian gherkins, a “different cultivar” than a cucumber I was assured by Wikipedia after editing my photos. They may be destined for the pickle jar as well.
And fruit! So exciting. The Veggie-Hating Husband also dislikes watermelon. Agua fresca? Watermelon steaks? Watermelon-cucumber-mint salad? So many possibilities.
Are you tired of summer produce yet? I am not. More tomatoes and eggplant for me, please!
