While I may not have posted updates on the CSA in a while, I have definitely been diligently photographing each week’s bounty. Here’s where I left off:

Week 9

Iron Creek CSA, Week 9

  • corn
  • various cherry tomatoes
  • blackberries
  • butter lettuce
  • various bell peppers
  • zucchini
  • patty pan squash
  • watermelon
  • leek
  • white onion
  • red onion
  • oak leaf lettuce
  • various heirloom tomatoes
  • cucumbers
  • various chiles

The blackberries from this week and the last were combined with some Seedling Farms peaches to make a hazelnut crisp. Nothing really fancy this week, much of it was eaten in salads or sauteed with a little olive oil and salt. The watermelon was deceivingly small and ended up providing us fruit for a few breakfasts. The chiles and onions were used in salsas for a taco party that we hosted.

Week 10

Iron Creek CSA, Week 10

  • various bell peppers
  • various chiles
  • cucumbers
  • summer squashes
  • various heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • various heirloom tomatoes
  • patty pan squash
  • oak leaf lettuce
  • leek
  • corn
  • white onion
  • red onion
  • watermelon
  • basil plant

This was the week before we left for vacation, so we ended up giving away the tomatoes and peppers and eating the rest. The basil was planted and is now thriving on our kitchen windowsill.

I’m still unpacking from my vacation, but I’ll post a few local food highlights from the trip as soon as I can.

    Have you liked Iron Creek? I am impressed with the variety of veggies, and so many mainstay ones. We did Homegrown Wisconsin for 3 years, and had to give up because I was so tired of the funky veggies (sunchokes and even salsify once) and way, way too much lettuce and tomatoes. But everything you have been getting in your boxes are what I buy at the farmer’s markets now.
