August 20 or 23

Peppers on the vine
Small boxes this week:  1 1/2 # carrots, 1 # fingerling potatoes, 2 #s of sweet peppers (yellow bells, jimmy nardellos, pimentos, lipstick), 1 bunch of komatsuna, 1 bunch of leeks, 1 pint of edamame.
Regular boxes this week have: 2 # carrots, 2# fingerlings, 3# sweet peppers, 1 bunch of komatsuna, 1 bunch of leeks, 2 pints of edamame, 1# mountain magic tomatoes, 1 # baby eggplant.

Saute 2 to 4 leeks and several of the peppers in olive oil, salt, and some herb ( basil, oregano, thyme, marjoram, parsley) until both are soft and the leeks translucent.  Turn off the heat and add the komatsuna (stems chopped thinly and leaves a bit larger).  Let the greens wilt and toss the vegetables with pasta or rice.
