It's Monday, which means I do a CSA delivery post every other week when we get our biweekly delivery. But today I'm leaving before the delivery arrives, and I won't be home until 8pm, so there's no way I can take a photo of the delicious local organic produce we receive. So I'll have to rely on my husband to put it away, and just tell you what we're supposed to get.
The most exciting thing is that we'll be receiving tomatoes. Yesterday my husband asked me why we can't buy the tomatoes at the store. He's a real tomato lover, and I'm glad I was able to tell him that we're scheduled to get them today. So we're really looking forward to some delicious heirloom tomatoes. We'll also be receiving: artichokes, nante carrots, green romaine, golden beets, red russian kale, rainer cherries, white nectarines, yellow peaches, albion strawberries, leeks, red onions, garlic, german butterball potatoes, and baby red spinach.
That sounds amazing! I can't wait to get home and check it out. I'm psyched about all the stone fruit and the strawberries.
I know a CSA post without a photo is a little lame, so I apologize. I promise a return to the CSA photos in two weeks, and next Monday I'll have a Meatless Monday recipes post. You can click here to check out previous CSA posts if you've just got to see a photo of delicious local produce.

Even if you don't belong to a CSA, it's Farmer's Market time and it's worth going to stock up on all the delicious summer fruit and vegetables. Do you shop at a Farmer's Market? Do you get a CSA delivery? Let us know in the Comments section. And please leave your ideas on what to do with any of the produce we're getting in our delivery today. Any creative ways to cook carrots? I'm a little tired of them, and mostly using them in soups and curries lately.
