CSA Boxed Share 7.6.09

I always get excited when I pick up my share for the week and the box is heavy—means there’s a bunch of cool stuff inside. Although, it’s pretty funny to watch a big tattooed galoot like me carrying a box of organic veggies around and then taking pictures of it like a mental patient.

Now, this week was packed with goodies. There was red leaf lettuce, kale, zucchini, cabbage, garlic, beets, fennel, onions, cucumbers and a flying saucer-looking gourd of some sort. I usually give the beets to my mom. It’s funny to watch her get ticked that they stain her hands. I’m evil.

How did you get kale? There hasn't been any on the list for days. And cukes? We got broccoli though

The "flying saucer-looking gourd of some sort" is a patty pan squash.

Also known as: Sunburst Squash or White squash or Scallopini or Button Squash. Its French name, "pâtisson," derives from a Provençal word for a cake made in a scalloped mould. The pattypan squash is also known as "cymling", "scallop squash", "custard marrow", or "custard squash".
