Last week’s potato mystery has been solved: the wrong size basket was put out for gathering each share, so each person inadvertently took too many and the potatoes ran out quickly. However, the farm was nice enough to send an extra couple of bins of red potatoes this week for those of us who missed out on potatoes last time. I didn’t expect that and it was a very nice thing for them to do.
This week we received a quart of white potatoes, 2 Carmen peppers, 2 bell peppers, 4 onions, 1 bunch of turnips, 3 slicing tomatoes, 3 jalapeno peppers, 1 quart of green beans, 1 bunch of broccoli rabe, 1 head of Salanova lettuce, 1 small bowl of arugula, 1 bowl of salad mix, 1 small handful of dill, and 1 head of garlic.
The dill smells like a holiday — chicken soup simmering on the stove. I’m guessing J. will commandeer the dill to make more pickles, unless I squirrel it away at the back of our fridge.
