the Short & Sweet Week 16 News

Imagine you read several dozen words here.

Such satisfying words!

Very nice.

We got our labels printed and started selling this season’s canned goods!

The weather was hot and cold and mostly wet.

And overall, we quite liked it.

in the box this week:

Bok Choi – Kristin loves this stuff – the flavorful leaves, the crunchy stems … good raw and in soup. Last one for the year, so you better enjoy it dammit.

Sweet Peppers –  A stuffed pepper casserole might be a good play this week, because you are blessed with a tasty pepper tsunami! Kristin eats about five of them every time she picks peppers. They also make good refrigerator pickles and go great in salads!

Perhaps fry up a bunch of peppers and onion with sausage or thin cut beef or mushrooms? mmmm

Crimson Giant Radishes –  also good either raw or cooked, the latter being the way to go if you’re not into the in-your-face radish flavor.

Broccoli – The fall crop is in!

Spaghetti Squash

Onions

Eggplant – again! But this is the very last time.

Heirloom & Cherry Tomatoes – the peak summer quality may be fading, but these are still a damn sight tastier than snowballs. Or any of the watery excuses for tomatoes you’re likely to see for the next 10 months or so …

a Cucumber 

Purple Basil –  combine with your tomatoes for glorious victory.
