Regular boxes: 3 lbs nicola potatoes, 2 lbs. beets, 2 lbs patty pan squash, 2 lbs small red tomatoes, 1 each of pink and yellow brandywine tomatoes, 1 bunch cipollini onions, torpedo/sweet onion mix, 1 zucchini, 1 purple bell, 1 eggplant, 1 bunch of shallots, 1 pint of blueberries.
Tomato season is upon us! If you want tomatoes to can or freeze, this week or next is the time to do it. We have lots of the red ones you have in your box today and lots of "seconds" of all varieties. For CSA members, tomatoes are $1/lb. (Market customers pay $3/lb.) If you are interested, email or call me to set up when you want to get them. Call Anne at 828-545-2362. They will slow down significantly in 2 weeks so if you want to do it, do it now!
Nicola potatoes are unsurpassed as makers of a perfect potato salad. They hold their form well due to their waxy texture. They also make great shredded hash browns!
Cipollini Onions are sweet and mild and make THE BEST roasted or caramelized onions.
