Ever since we moved to California everyone has assured us that the weather is not normal. The torrential rains we got this winter were unheard of, the late rains in spring were bizarre, a cool cloudy July was strange. We don’t have a basis of comparison there, but we’re told it’s not usual.
My only real problem with the weather is that we don’t have tomatoes yet. Until this week! The tomato plants were getting enough hours of sun, but not enough heat to ripen the fruit. Finally, they’re arrived!
…. and I’m in Minnesota. Mom and I hit the farmer’s market this morning for potatoes, and she picked up beets and summer squash on Sunday. Two posts are forthcoming from the trip already. However, my brave spouse is on CSA retrieval duty while I am gone and is not supplying us with photos. I’ll recycle the few repeats I’ve got!
Red Monarch Kale
Dill (for pickles?)
• Socrates Bell Pepper
• Bloomsdale Savoy Spinach
• Zefa Fino Fennel
• Cucumber Mix
• Mixed Summer Squash
This list has me imagining some really nice pasta dishes, pizzas, or even potato salads.
