Mesclun, sweet peppers, red shallots, mizuna, green tomatoes, torpedo onions, purple potatoes, scallions, curly parsley, Blythedale Farm brie, Pete's Greens Kitchen chicken stock.
We were also to have gotten Lacto-Fermented Dill Pickles from Pete's Greens Kitchen but for some reason it was crossed off the share list at the pickup point.
It seems as though our shares have been fairly small lately. I don't know if this is because the farm has been having a tough season with all the rain or if it's related to increased costs there or if I'm just wrong about the share size.
We have decided to split the next share with another family because it's hard to use a lot of root veggies that will be coming in the next share. I've also found that if I don't cook it, it doesn't get used as Ben never plans any meals around what we've got in the share; he prefers to decide what he wants to eat and then go to the store to buy the ingredients. Our freezer is full of stuff I cook just to use share veggies up as well as tomato sauces of various types from the garden. I find I'm a bit overstocked on some things so lately I've been chopping onions and freezing them for future use because we've been getting so many of them in the share and I don't want them to go to waste. It's time to clear out the freezer a bit and we can do that over the next couple of months.
I wish we could continue to get the share weekly but it turns out that I just can't do all the cooking and keep doing everything else I've got on my to-do list so this is what I'm going to let go for now. I've also found that it's nice to have a bit more flexibility in the menu than I've got when I need to use what's in the share.
Our first missed share will be Oct 22.
