August 28 CSA (14th week)

  This is the 14th box of the 22 week season.  We started 2 weeks later than anticipated so the season will go 2 weeks later.  That puts the last regular season box at October 23rd.  For those of you who purchased an extended season share, that was slated to start Oct 23 but will now be Oct 30, Nov. 6, 13, and 20th. 

Small shares this week contain:  2 fresh garlic bulbs, 1/2 lb. yellow onions, 1 head of romaine, 1 bunch bok choy, 1 bunch multi-color carrots, 1 pint edamame, 1/2 lb. okra, 1 bell pepper.
Regular shares contain:  the above plus more onions, 2 lbs. german butterball potatoes, 1 lb. summer squash, 1 quart cherry tomatoes.

This is the last of the fresh garlic.  Next week it will be cured garlic and can be kept out of the refrigerator.  Everything should be refrigerated this week.

Try roasting your okra.  You wash it and pat it dry then toss it with some olive oil, salt and pepper and spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Roast in a 425 degree oven until a bit browned and sizzling (about 20 mins.  You can add whole garlic cloves and carrots halved lengthwise if you'd like.
