Farm share week 16

In this week's box: 
  • Carrots: 2 lbs
  • Green peppers: 1.5 lbs
  • Potatoes: 3 lbs
  • Apples: 1.5 lbs
  • Tomatoes: 1.25
  • Callaloo: 0.75 lb
  • Basil: 0.5 lb
These early Macintosh apples are really good -- the ones we got last week didn't hang around long in the fridge... And more basil means more pesto, hurray!  (Now that I know how easy it is to make pesto in the food processor, I want to make it all the time.)

The tomatoes we got this week are beautiful -- previously we'd been getting what they call "field tomatoes," which are your common alleycat tomatoes, but these are obviously heirloom (as confirmed in this week's newsletter). The red one is almost too pretty to eat!
