Sept 4 CSA
Small shares: 1 bunch mustard and tatsoi greens, 1 head of lettuce, 1 bunch radishes, 1 garlic, 2-3 yellow onions, 1 pint tomatoes, 1/2 lb. okra, 1 lb. summer squash, 2 peppers.
Regular shares: all the above plus 1/2 lb. more okra, another garlic, another pepper, 1 lb. pickling cucumbers.
The mustard greens are the green curly leaves and the red tinted leaves and the tatsoi is the smooth leaf green. The mustards are spicy and the tatsoi sweet and mild. They are delicious lightly sauteed together. They also make a good pesto by themselves or in combination with basil or parsley (and the garlic, salt, olive oil, lemon etc.).
This is THE END of the tomatoes.
There is a bell pepper and an antohi romania pepper in your box. They are both sweet; the antohi very sweet. The regular boxes also have a yellow bell that will ripen all the way yellow if left out on the counter for a few days.
