CSA on Hiatus

Our last CSA delivery for a little while--the CSA continues, but we're skipping town for a month. Blogging might be a bit more sporadic, but I'll have extensive camping and wedding photography when we return.

This week's share was definitely the real beginning of summer--all the classics. We got corn, potatoes, summer squash, purple cabbage, bok choy, a yellow onion, and the first runty and slightly miserable looking tomatoes. Unfortunately, our farmer tells us that he has gotten the tomato blight sweeping the Northeast, and while he is spraying some fields with dubious-sounding copper spray, it doesn't look like it's going to be a great tomato year. To put it mildly. I'll be sorry to miss the rest of the corn (last year I froze enough to last us through half the winter), but I'm looking forward to all the farmstands in Vermont, Maine, and Massachusetts. Now someone, quick, tell me what to do in the next 12 hours with an entire head of red cabbage.
