Potatoes and What's in the Box

This is the prettiest photo from this week's CSA box (manna from heaven?).

A mighty fine box, all in all:
Yukina Savoy, Cucumber (or Summer Squash or Zucchini), Sweet Spanish Onions, Italian Garlic, Red or Rainbow Kale, Dill, Red Norland Potatoes, Broccoli or Cauliflower, Carrots, Red or Gold Beets, Green or Sweetheart or Savoy Cabbage. Lots of "ors", since we're still dealing with the ramifications of June's heavy rains. The first plantings of some crops have suffered and we don't always have enough of any one item to go into every CSA box. Soon, my friend, soon. We've replanted and anticipate great big juicy harvests with something of everything for every single one of you.

Plus a lovely fruit share delivery this week with lemons, Flame seedless grapes, Lapin cherries, blueberries, Dapple Dandy pluots, Elegant Lady peaches (from Mas Masumoto - I just started reading his Four Seasons in Five Senses), and Flavortop yellow nectarines.
I'm feeling inspired. More again soon.
