Week 05 and Week 06: What Our Neighbors Got

Filed under: pre-pickup — Tags: , , , — M @ 16:05 PM

Two days after we left for our vacation, a box was delivered. We gave it to our next-door neighbors. They were supposed to get

  • Blueberries
  • Basil, Green
  • Beans, Green
  • Beets, Red
  • Bok Choy
  • Chicory Greens
  • Cucumbers
  • Lettuce, Red Romaine
  • Mizuna
  • Zucchini

The recipe suggestions from that week were for a zucchini topping to serve over cheese ravioli, and for a chicory salad with bacon and fried potatoes. I was also disheartened to read in the newsletter that they just ordered more seeds for fall greens including (gulp) more brassicas. Sigh. Basta, as my seventh-grade Latin teacher would say. Enough.

The week after, we got back into town too late to pick up our box, so once again the neighbors picked it up. That delivery was supposed to contain

  • Blueberries
  • Basil, Green
  • Basil, Lemon
  • Beans, Green
  • Carrots, Orange Fresh Baby
  • Cucumbers
  • Kale, Green
  • Lettuce, Red Romaine
  • Onions, Bunching
  • Zucchini

The neighbors got most of the good stuff, I think.
