Veggie List September 27

This week, fall has come.  It’s still raining a lot, and there are still hot days, but fall is in the air, and in the ground, seeping up, bringing in thick fogs and golden and red leaves.

So, this week:

Delicata squash
Sweet potatoes
Swiss chard
Leeks
Onions
Garlic
Tomatoes
Sweet peppers
Salad mix
Radishes
Eggplant

We’re moving back towards soups, roasted squash, and things cooked with apple cider (hard or fresh).  It’s good that fall has come round, now.  It’s been a rough summer, agriculturally speaking, what with two enormous flooding events in barely two weeks, followed by relentless rain.  It feels like the cooling weather and the winding down of the agricultural season, is a kind of relief – if a sad one.

Veggie List August 27

A combined list from market and CSA (and joy) (and abundance):

Arugula
French string beans
Tomatoes
Cucumbers
Parsley
Carrots
Red bell peppers
Garlic
Zucchini
Celery
Fingerling potatoes
Scallions
Peaches
Cipolini onions
Sweet Corn

To be clear, we’re not going to manage to eat all of this in the next few days.  Most of it we got last week in CSA and a little we got today at market.  Now we’ve got to the time of year when we can just plan a meal, picka  recipe, and find whatever we need for it when we want it. Hurray!

Turning the Corner

So here we are, the first week of August, and finally, finally, the summer bounty is in.  In the last week or so we finally turned the corner from green garlic back to cured garlic; we picked parsley from our own potted plant; we ate fresh tomatoes from the farm where we have a CSA.  There is fresh, not frozen, corn in our fridge.

  The past few weeks have been something of a blur here with unexpected family commitments taking us out of town three weekends in a row.  It seems like July was  utterly lost to us and before I had realized it, August had come.  And with it, all the summer goodness we waited the winter for.  Today, our veggie list is really something to marvel at:

Eggplant
Tomatoes & cherry tomatoes
Jalapeno peppers
Zucchini
Basil
Red and white onions
Arugula
Amaranth greens
Chard
Beets

It is also nearly a year since we moved to this area: this time last year, living further south, I had already frozen most of the peppers, corn, kale, and zucchini that got us through the winter.  And here we are again, ready to start freezing for next winter.  We’ve already got some pesto and peas.  Next to come is corn, peppers, zucchini, kale, and more.  As always, the year turns around and we face again the seasons and tasks of the year before.  There is something gratifying in turning this corner.  We not only made it through the winter, we’re back to freezing for next year, while enjoying the fruits and veggies of the summer.  We’ve moved from the hopeful looking-forward of green garlic to the real thing, the cured garlic which, when stored well, can last up to eight months.
