Week 11 Lists

Boxes are getting heavier!  Quick storage notes: greens (including the beet greens) loose in plastic in the crisper, cherries and berries covered in the fridge, and onions-beans-beets to the bottom of the fridge as well.  The squash are probably fine on your countertop if you’re going to eat them in the next day or two.  Some of the apricots probably aren’t totally ripe yet, and if they aren’t, put them in a paper bag on the countertop.  Check them in the morning and evening until they’re as soft as you’d like.  (Some of the apricots are also slightly bruised from a wind storm at the farm last night.  They’re fine, but eat them first.)
I listed the retail values for the small share veggies that David charges at the farmer’s market, and we estimated them as best we could by weight.  All told, retail, the small box this week is worth $60 at full value.

Apricots (4-5 lbs at $3/lb = ~$12)
Cherries ($3 for the half pound)

    The green beans might have been left out… I’m checking.

Fava beans are meant to be eaten very young.  Remove the beans from their shells and then fry or boil them, mash them and serve them on toasted bread, or sautee them with shrimp and peas.
