Week 15: ApPear-ently there is a virus going around

Hey all! Looks like my house has been infected with a nasty August cold that must be going around. So, I'm going to try and make this quick before my head caves in from all this sinus pressure. 

What is in the shares this week:

  • Bell Peppers
  • Jalapenos
  • Cucumbers
  • Valencia Onions
  • Pea Shoots
  • Fingerling Potatoes
  • Radishes
  • Pears (you should allow these babies to finish ripening on the counter top)

What am I making this week:

  1. French Pear Tart
  2. Cucumber Salsa
  3. Pea Shoot Salad with Radishes and Pickled Onions
  4. Herb Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

The forecast for next week: bell peppers, sweet peppers, honeynut squash, red onions, pea shoots, pears and radishes. Also, expect larger quantities of vegetables for this week. The Farmers' Market Dustin goes to on Saturdays doesn't meet Labor Day weekend. We jokingly call this our 'Share a Share' event because it seems that most of our clients like to spread the goodwill around with friends and neighbors who could use some veggies.
