Summer 2013 Week 8 (August 6th)

I left the camera (with pictures of your vegetables in it) at home. Sorry! I’ll put pics up tonight. In the meantime, here’s the shares:

SMALL
summer squash
cucumber
corn salad (leaf lettuce)
mizuna
turnip greens
peaches (early variety, they don’t get large or very soft)
onions
rhubarb
rutabaga
shallots
basil

MEDIUM
Thai basil
Gypsy pepper (a sweet pepper, but mine smelled a little spicy)
Italian squash (aka cucuzza, treat like zucchini)
extra peaches
extra rhubarb

I’ve been making a curry out of rhubarb, rutabaga, garlic, onions, and lentils. Cook the lentils ahead of time in a bit of stock, saute up the onions and garlic, stir in diced rhubarb and rutabaga, add a bit of water and the curry seasoning of your choice. Add the lentils when everything else is soft. Add more water for a saucy curry over rice, or eat it as is (especially if you add some shredded greens just before the lentils).
