I selected:

lettuce
scallions
shallot
cucumber
summer squash
broccoli
arugula
green beans


With the lettuce from CSA Week #6, the new lettuce and arugula this week I was able to prep the lettuce for 3 very nice salads, vacuum sealed in pint jars.

Snapped the stem end off the green beans and blanched them for 2 minutes in boiling salted water before rinsing in cold water. Here they are waiting to cool off a little more before vacuum sealing.

I used half of the cucumber in prepared salad veggies, vacuum sealed in jars so they'll keep fresh for 5 or so days.

And some of the scallions and broccoli in Twice-cooked pork with broccoli, scallions and noodles.
