This week's Wellspring Farm small share CSA:

Broccoli
Beets
Watermelon
Lettuce (Romaine?)
Cucumber
Zucchini
Yellow Sqash
Red Onions
Green Pepper
Purple Pepper
Tomatoes
Garlic

Broccoli is just cleaned and stored in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator,

Lettuce is cleaned, cut, and vacuum sealed in pint jars.

Red onions, tomatoes, and garlic are stored in 55°F cool storage.

Cucumber is vacuum sealed with a paper towel and stored in the refrigerator. Update: I decided that I no longer like this technique. After two weeks the cucumber looks and feels normal on the outside, but gets a bizarre texture on the inside!

Green and purple peppers are vacuum sealed at a lower vacuum (20 second vacuum) and stored in the refrigerator.

Beets are vacuum sealed at normal setting (30 seconds) and stored in the refrigerator.

Zucchini and squash are just stored in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator.

csa8-2.jpgI made:

A jerk chicken Caesar salad with the lettuce.

There are tomatoes, onions, and garlic in a repeat of smoked pork tacos with salsa fresca.

I used a tomato, onion, and garlic in Chorizo breakfast burrito.

I used some of the broccoli to make Beef with broccoli and scallions.

There are green peppers, onions, and garlic in Pad ga prao.

The lettuce went into salads (of course) including this one.

In addition to eating watermelon, I made Yellow watermelon Sauza Hornitos frozen margaritas.
